Assignment to BigDecimal type property causes compilation errors in executable model.

Solution Unverified - Updated -


Building a rule which is described in MVEL dialect and contains an assignment statement to BigDecimal type property in executable rule model causes compilation errors.

When I build a maven project which contains rules using an assignment statement to BigDecimal type property like (*1) with executable model enabled,

package com.example.reproducer

import com.example.reproducer.Bus

dialect "mvel"

rule "bus3a"
        $bus : Bus()
        modify($bus) {
            weight = 13000    // ..... (*1)
        System.out.println("***** " + $bus + ", weight = " + $bus.weight);

// weight is a BigDecimal type property of Bus class.

compilation errors occur with the messages like below.

$ mvn clean compile -DgenerateModel=YES
[ERROR] /work2/testdir/reproducer_model_compiler_3a/target/generated-sources/drools-model-compiler/main/java/com/example/reproducer/P23/[20,13] weight has private access in com.example.reproducer.Bus
