Just like the DRL you'd use to declare facts. The Declare keyword in the RuleTable is really only a placeholder for (any) free format DRL but conveniently reserved for use for declared types (historically people added declared types to the Functions keyword, or similar).

If however the XLS is imported into Guvnor and converted to a web guided decision table the Declare section is converted into a declarative model in Guvnor.

Didn't want to start another thread but i have a question about declare types
in decision tables.

What is the format?

In the documentation is defines the keyword 'Declare'.  I use this under the
same column as the RuleSet and to the right i define the type as such

date: Date
cost: float

Do i need to also put and end or something?  When i load it into guvnor and
show source the compiled DRL doesn't have the declare section in it so i'm
guessing my format in the spreadsheet is wrong.  How should it look?
