    jBPM5 signalEvent data not propagated to a rule

      Hi,

       

      I have a small example that uses jBPM and drools task, as shown on picture:

      Basically, I'd want to trigger a signal that is going to continue with a rule task and end process. I want my event to carry data, so I've added data to a signal:

      Event event = new Event();
       event.setData("some data");
       processInstance.signalEvent("Signal", event);
      

       

      In a rule task I want to use this data from signal in LHS side:

      $event : Event() from $p.getVariable("event")
      

       

      This is not working and rule is not triggered.

      At the same time, I can print this variable on RHS side, and it is obviuos that it exists.

      Am I missing something in a rule, or this construct is not supported by Drools?

       

      I have attached my Eclipse project as a reference.

       

      Thanks,

      Miljenko
