Space characters between "(" and the type of local variable declaration in the enhanced "for" (foreach) statement causes a compilation error.

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Building a maven project containing rules using the enhanced for (foreach) statement in MVEL dialect with executable rule model disabled sometimes fails.

For example, my project contains a rule written in MVEL dialect like below and uses the enhanced for statement at (*1).

dialect "mvel"

rule "bus1"
        $buses : ArrayList() from collect ( Bus() )
        for ( Bus bus : $buses ) {    .......... (*1)
            System.out.println("bus: " + bus);

When I build the project with executable rule model disabled, a compilation error occurs with the following error message.

$ mvn clean compile exec:exec -DgenerateModel=NO
[ERROR] Unable to build KieBaseModel:rules
Unable to Analyse Expression for ( Bus bus : $buses ) {            System.out.println("bus: " + bus);        };:
[Error: cannot resolve identifier: Bu]
[Near : {... for ( Bus bus : $buses ) { ....}]
[Line: 8, Column: 0] : [Rule name='bus1']
