Book Description:

The first book for developers on the emerging and increasingly popular subject of business rules engines.

From the Back Cover:

[shelving code] Data Management/Programming

Business rules engines can make organizations more agile by allowing them to manage diverse sets of operating rules, such as many different contracts for goods and services with different clients. For example, business rules engines can contain interfaces that allow users to define business rules to add specific functionality to software applications in order to take advantage of particular business arrangements. This enables organizations to overcome the barriers of time, money, and reliability that traditional programming approaches present when trying to include variable business situations within information systems. Rules engines can also speed software implementation, provide increased auditability, and ensure engineering compliance. The capacity to understand and manage business rules outside of the "black box" of program code can improve the overall quality of IT infrastructures.

How to Build a Business Rules Engine is the first book to provide a detailed roadmap, with examples, for building a business rules engine. Written from the author"s 12 years of experience building business rules functionality, this book covers the necessary background and concepts, as well as the specific steps needed to build a rules engine. The book describes not only the components that a rules engine must have, but also the organizational issues that may determine its success after it has been built and implemented.
