I have three questions, re: the following line of code in Drools (LHS).
sd : SmartDescription(description matches "MAR(K|KE|KED)? ",
pFamilies.containsKey(SchemaConstants.CERAMIC_NETWORKS), description :
description, pFamilies : possibleFamilies);
To put it in plain English, I want to match against the regex, but only if
the rule can provide useful information (ie the two constant family id keys
are still present in the family maps). When I put in
SchemaConstants.familyKey, it tells me I've got an unexpected token. How
can I accomplish this?
Is there a way to store the regex in a local rule variable? Ie,
String pattern = "MAR(K|KE|KED)? ";
Description matches pattern, .
Finally, this is a rather long line, is there a way to split apart the
testing of the map condition from the match condition into a separate part,
to let it match the .containsKey on a separate line?
