Infinite loop in RETE mode

Problem discription:


I am using the RETE execution mode and because of two rules in the same ruleset, in which action of one rule is satisfying the condition of other rule, execution control is unable to break out of the loop.


I have tried with the rule priority and it does not help. For feasibile solution, both rules needs to reside in the same ruleset. Cannot maintain in separeate rulesets. Either cannot go for sequential mode as there may be major impact on the system running currently.


I am aware that the looping can be broken by maintaining flags, but this may not be very useful in this case as rules are written in RMA and this is not the right solution to be given to Non-techies (Analysts).


Any other idea???
