Issue

According to JBoss BRMS 5.3.1 documentation

Rule templates are an experimental feature which is not supported by Red Hat.".
  • Are rule templates supported in BRMS 5.3.1?
  • Will they be supported in JBoss BPMS 6.0?

Resolution

  • The use of rule templates via GUI provided by the web console (i.e. Guvnor for version 5 or Business Central for version 6) is supported, however the direct use of the API associated with rule templates is currently not supported, and also will not be supported for any version of Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6.x as described in Rule Templates section.

Root Cause

  • The API associated with rule templates is not yet stable and subject to change. Also they are not verified by our QA team, it is considered only experimental. So only the Guided Rule Templates are officially supported by Red Hat.
