A Drools pattern without field constraints, will map into the r2ml:ObjectClassificationAtom.
This Drools pattern finds its R2ML translation into the below code.
The above Drools pattern can be declared inside rules conditions also without the c variable, such as: Cheese (), but to be able to refer to the matched facts, usually, the rules conditions use a pattern binding variable such as c (i.e.
Notice that the translation of the Drools variables into R2ML eliminates the $ symbol (used in Drools only as a notation convention) from the names of the variables.
The Drools field constraints may be of the following possible types (i.e.
A Drools pattern formula translates into R2ML formula, using the R2ML simple/imbricated concepts of r2ml:qf.Disjunction and r2ml:qf.Conjunction (qf stands for "quantifier free") applied on R2ML atoms, in order to serialize the Drools CE || and &&, respectively.
In the example below, we have two Drools patterns that in classical logic have the following representation, taking into account the operators order from Drools i.e.
The above Drools pattern translates into the following R2ML formula (i.e.
First pattern from the Drools example above (see line 1.) contains as field constraint a bound variable, called declaration.
The relational operations from Drools are serialized into R2ML language using the r2ml : DatatypePredicateAtom construct.
The following Drools pattern describes a Drools literal String constraint.
The Drools literal date type field constraints are represented into R2ML using XML qualified name xs: dateTime.
The Drools numeric operators work analogous for this type of field constraint, so the serialization into R2ML code is also the r2ml:DatatypePredicateAtom i.e.
Another meaningful example of Drools field constraints is testing the equality or inequality of a property against the Java null value i.e.
We have mentioned before that implicitly, the and operator binds the Drools patterns inside the rule condition.
