Can a kjar depend on kjars in BRMS/BPMS?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Can users add multiple kjars in one KieContainer?
  • We have resources (rules, ruleflows, processes, etc) in multiple kjars that we would like to access from a single KieContainer.
  • When users upload a kjar to Artifact repository and set the kjar as a dependency of a project, they face an Exception like this.
RuntimeException: Cannot find a default KieBase
  • A process in the dependent kjar doesn't show up in Process Definitions panel and users face an Exception like this.
Unknown process ID: com.sample.bpmn.hello2
