hi!  

Has anybody worked on eclipse IDE on drools rule engine?  I add the plugin in 3.2 and created a new drools project.  It comes with a drl file  "Rule.java.drl"  and a test file (with a main class in it) "DroolsTest.java".  The project should run as it is acorrding to docs but is giving an error

"could not find main class, program will exit"

Somehow cannot find the main class?  Any clue why? I think I have all the classpath set.

How exactly are you running? Did you right-click on DroolsTest.java and select Run As -> Java Application, or select from the Run menu -> Run As -> Java Application.

Oh then its a version error. That class was developed for a different version of Java and your default version in the Eclipse project is something else. Try changing the JRE in Eclipse (for this project) to point to another version.

do you mean jdk1.5?  I have 1.4.2 and I also tried with the IMB_jre that comes when you install Websphere........

Well I'm not sure which version drools needs. Maybe it needs Java 5 - you can try installing the runtime for that from Sun's site http://java.sun.com/j2se/ and configure it with Eclipse (you can have multiple JREs installed on a machine but the one that matters for Eclipse is the one the project is configured with).
