As mentioned, I'm trying to build a custom rule editor.
I'm looking at the following approaches:
- Guvnor REST - seems very limited - but could be used for simply CRUD
- Re-using Guvnor code, such as webapp-core - apparently
has undocumented dependencies. Also, its a large code base - would take
time to get familiar.
- A DSL to DRL converter - for complex rules, which we have, this will
also be complex
- using RuleML
I would be very interested to hear how others have tacked this challenge,
or any recommendations from drools users/developers.

The REST API is primarily for CRUD operations; it is not a
API to assemble rules and as such your comments about calendars and
salience etc are not provided in the REST API.
You can however, and as some do, download the source for a rule,
deserialise this into Guvnor's *internal* model (depending on the type of
rule), modify this programmatically, serialise back to source and use REST
to write it back to Guvnor.
"Source" as used above could be XML although some assets are stored as
Also all models should be considered as *internal* (I.e. not public) as we
don't undertake that they are compatible between releases (although in
reality they have changed very little, other than guided decision tables).
