Depending on the enabling of persistence, the session is created as follows:

  • In-memory session: All data related to session and the engine status is kept in memory and lost on engine restart

  • JTA session: Session persisted through a JPA EntityManager and a JTA transaction manager

To create a new (stateful) KieSession, we configure the environment and we use JPAKnowledgeService:

Environment env = KnowledgeBaseFactory.newEnvironment();
EntityManagerFactory emf= Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory( "com.packt.masterjbpm6.persistenceunit" ));
env.set( EnvironmentName.ENTITY_MANAGER_FACTORY,emf);
env.set( EnvironmentName.TRANSACTION_MANAGER...
