Ciao, Happy New Year !
I've appended comments and example project file to DROOLS-373
 , because despite now using 6.0.1.Final it still does not work, at least for me, I still have to double-declare the dependency as a normal dependency but also within the kie-maven-plugin declaration.
Could somebody have a look, referencing the attached example project, and kindly let me know if either it's me really on a difficult relationship with Maven, or actually is this jira to be reopened, please? =)
