Forum (community volunteer support)
All our forums now use Google Groups, which allows for both web and email interaction.
Please follow these recommendations when posting a question:
Please post to the relevant group. DO NOT post setup, configuration, adminstration questions to Drools Usage
Before posting first search the archives for similar questions. Searches should include Google Groups, StackOverflow and Jira.
Get to the point. Keep it as short as possible.
Include relevant technical details (version, stacktrace, short code snippet, …).
Be polite, friendly and clear. Reread your question before posting it.
Be patient. Do not email people directly. This isn’t paid support.
Setup questions and discussions
Installation, configuration, setup and administration discussions for the Workbench, Eclipse, runtime environments and general enterprise architectures.
Usage questions and discussions
Authoring and execution with Drools. Includes all authoring metaphors from text DRL to UI scorecards. General API help and best practices in building rule based systems.
StackOverflow is a popular externally run question and answer site, it does not allow for general discussions, and provides scoring and moderation.
If you want to help improve Drools or have ideas you want to discuss (bug fixing, documentation or feature development) then come talk with us.
