Description Mario Fusco 2014-01-24 10:33:29 UTC
When a static method with the same signature is declared by a class and its superclass Drools mistakenly invokes the one of the superclass even when it shouldn't.

The original jira ticket reports this problem as a bug of the constraint jitting process. However I find a simpler use case (that I am pasting below) showing that in some cases this problem is present also before the constraints jitter kicks in.

    public static class ARef {
        public static int getSize(String s) {
            return 0;

    public static class BRef extends ARef {
        public static int getSize(String s) {
            return s.length();

    public void testJittingConstraintInvokingStaticMethod() throws Exception {
        // DROOLS-410
        String str =
                "dialect \"mvel\"\n" +
                "import org.drools.compiler.integrationtests.Misc2Test.ARef\n" +
                "import org.drools.compiler.integrationtests.Misc2Test.BRef\n" +
                "\n" +
                "global java.util.List list;\n" +
                "\n" +
                "rule R when\n" +
                "    $s : String( length == BRef.getSize(this) )\n" +
                "then\n" +
                "    list.add($s);\n" +

        KnowledgeBase kbase = loadKnowledgeBaseFromString(str);
        StatefulKnowledgeSession ksession = kbase.newStatefulKnowledgeSession();

        List<String> list = new ArrayList<String>();
        ksession.setGlobal("list", list);


        assertEquals(1, list.size());

Comment 1 JBoss JIRA Server 2014-01-24 10:39:53 UTC
Mario Fusco <> updated the status of jira DROOLS-410 to Resolved

Comment 3 Mario Fusco 2014-01-24 10:41:55 UTC
Fixed by and

Since the solution for this issue also requires a fix made in mvel, the complete fix will be available when the next mvel release (2.1.9.Final) will be out.
