The next release should be the candidate release, all modules now seem to be working, we are now just working on cleaning things up and improving and updating documentation.

Hi Mark,

Drools 5 seems to be a really great product. Maybe 18 months ago I evaluated rules engines and business process engines and made my decision to use jbpm together with Drools.

Now - in 3 weeks or so its time to really integrate processes and rules into my application (ERP solution for small and medium-sized-companies) - my server is ready (OSGI - EJB3) and my UI (Eclipse Riena based). Core parts of the OSGI client-server app will be Open Source.

Last months I always noticed the problem for business people to understand the differences between business processes and rules, because from the point-of-view of business use-cases they are integrated. why are there two tools / frameworks to manage the same thing ?

For me the main reason to use both was persistence of long running processes and manual tasks in the past only available in business process engine.

Now I read the documentation of Drools 5 and noticed that all is availabe in ONE product: Drools 5. Thats really great news - I hope I understood all well and I'll give it a try to do it with Drools only. This gives me a better feeling than my previous decision.

Thanks for all your work.
