    Note

    The list of imported jar files above is not complete. Make sure you import all drools, knowledge, and jbpm jar files.
A Maven pom.xml file defines project dependencies, which are automatically retrieved when building the project with Maven. The following pom.xml file is an example that shows how to declare dependencies for different use cases:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" 
            xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
