Configuring Guvnor to use an external RDBMS made easier

The default Guvnor repository configuration uses embedded Derby databases which writes the workspace and version information to the local file system. This is not always optimal for a production system where it makes sense to use an external RDBMS.

We added a new section under the "Administration" tab called "Repository Configuration" which helps generate the repository.xml configuration file for a number of databases (Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Derby, H2)

Check out a video showing the new feature.


  1. This is very good but I dont see it in the SVN build - the same applies for the oryx integration

  2. Hi Abdel, Jira for this feature is
    The Oryx integration is worked on independently from the Drools releases as mentioned in recent blog Hope this helps.
