I always thought a Buffered Reader was simply a buffering mechanism around an Input Stream that may not otherwise be buffered to increase performance?
Files are normally buffered by the OS, but I'm sure there are enough other stream types out there that aren't natively buffered.
Wouldn't have thought there would (should) be any impact on JBoss Rules?!?
Correct me if I'm wrong - always keen to learn.

Subject: [rules-users] Loading drl file

Is there any downside/impact of loading the drl file via BufferedReader vs. InputStreamReader when building a package?
