      After adding a package containing two rules and then removing one of the rules, the remaining rule is no longer activated when a matching fact is asserted. Following is a unit test displaying this behavior, along with its .drl file.

      • Create a new RuleBase from a package containing two rules, "Hello" and
      • "Goodbye". First verify both rules are applied as expected. Then remove
      • the "Hello" rule and verify the "Hello" rule is no longer applied, but
      • the "Goodbye" rule is applied. In Drools 4.0.3, the removal of the
      • "Hello" rule causes the "Goodbye" rule to no longer be applied.
