Comment 1. Business Rules Engines are required to execute one or more rules in an Enterprise or Software System. The ability to maintain and execute rules as separate from the application code is the greatest advantage of such engines. Business Rules Engine are a form of Expert System. Expert System in the most simple terms, allows human expert-like. Inference Engine: These are based on a set of 'If-Then' kind of behaviors or evaluations.
Reaction Rules: These are used to process event patterns and perform actions. Drools is an open-source project that has the following major components. The Rete Algorithm requires an extensive discussion, which I am not scoping into this blog entry. I will demonstrate only this particular use-case in this blog entry including how to run the 'Intelligent Data Loader' to understand rules engine processing.
You may need to do the following before you can download and run the code:. Download the Eclipse Plugin for Drools include in classpath. Use JDK 1. You may choose to start a 'Java' project, as opposed to a 'Drools' project. Then include the following JARs in the classpath:. The creation of your first rule using the 'mvel' dialect though should not be a very difficult task for the experienced Java developer.
I am not explaining the use-case implementation detail, except that it checks if the source ip and source port are equal to a specific number. Instantiate the important Drools Runtime objects as shown below.
You may also understand from the below code, how to include and refer the rules file. There is a data loader that starts, internally, a threaded loading mechanism for sending multiple events to the Drools Expert Runtime. You have to make sure that you 'Inject' a positive test case at every interval, to test out the functionality of Drools Expert.
There are other rule forms that you may use such as Decision Tables. It is only a matter of configuration, classpath, regular expressions, and a straightforward understanding of. Also, I recommend that you make sure that you use Microsoft Excel to edition the Decision Table Spreadsheet, or else you may end up with weird issues. See the original article here.

Guvnor is the name of the web and network related components for managing rules with drools. This combined with the core drools engine and other tools forms the business rules manager. Guvnor can be "branded" and made part of your application, or it can be a central rule repository. In some situations applications may exist which have the rules in a database for instance as part of an existing application , and no new application is needed to manage the rules.
Rules Engines - Using Drools Expert
This blog article describes how to setup Drools Guvnor , the business rule management server that accompanies Jboss Drools. We describe what it is and discuss how to install and configure it, how to add model jars and add rules that act on the pojos of these model jars using the user friendly interface. We describe how to load the guvnor rule packages from external applications and fire their rules, or, how to import them into the project workspace with the Eclipse Guvnor Tools that come with the Jboss Tools plugin. Finally, we mention the Guvnor rest API and describe one of its use cases. Drools Guvnor is a repository for Drools rules. It keeps Drools rules and the models on which the rules act in a centralised place, and manages their versioning as well.
