On : version, Oracle Business Rules

If output facts are using the same schema as input facts the engine thinks the input is changed so it runs the rules again.  It will do this up to a limit (specified in the Decision Function)

Output facts using the same shcema as input facts should properly process the business rules. 

1) Create a SOA application
2) Create an Async BPEL Process
3) Create a new XSD with a complex type having a sequence and an element (single XSD for both input and output facts)
4) Import the XSD created above to the BPEL process's XSD
5) Create two elements to serve as the Business Rule's input and Output facts.
6) Set the output element's type to the complex type created at step 3
7) Create a Business Rule component
8) Deploy & Test.
