Issue

  • How to set drools.dateformat to business-central.war comes with BRMS/BPMS 6.0

Resolution

1: Start JBoss B*MS

2: Clone system repository

git clone ssh://admin@localhost:8001/system

3: Modify system/settings.global, and remove entry for drools.dataformat

 <entry>
  <string>drools.dateformat</string>
  <item>
   <name>drools.dateformat</name>
   <value class="string">dd-MMM-yyyy</value>
  </item>
 </entry>

4: After that, commit the fix

git add
git commit -m "remove drools.dateformat"

5: Push the fix

git push

6: stop JBoss B*MS

7: Start B*MS with sytem property, drools.dateformat

 ./standalone.sh -Ddrools.dateformat=yyyy-MMM-dd

You can find that drools.dateformat is correctly set by checking log

10:37:29,153 INFO  [org.guvnor.common.services.backend.config.ApplicationPreferencesLoader] (MSC service thread 1-7) Setting preference 'drools.dateformat' to 'yyyy-MMM-dd'

Please backup .niogit before following above instructions.
It's ok not to remove the global setting for drools.dateformat at step 3. You can modify entry tag as follows:

 <entry>
  <string>drools.dateformat</string>
  <item>
   <name>drools.dateformat</name>
   <value class="string">yyyy-MMM-dd</value>
  </item>
 </entry>

Would be keen to know how to update this for a current instance of Business Central - even better if it includes docs on what to set up within OpenShift. Thanks!
