Important Notice

The WSO2 Business Rules Server (WSO2 BRS) was created as a mechanism to host standalone business rules services. We no longer believe it is well suited for others to use directly, and as such it will no longer be available for download.

We currently have the ability to execute business rules within WSO2 ESB, and we encourage you to continue to use the WSO2 ESB to create business rules services.

If you are currently using WSO2 BRS as a standalone product please contact us

We will of course support it as needed or help you migrate to the right higher level product.

The WSO2 Business Rules Server brings the agility of business rules to your SOA toolkit. Based on a solid platform for hosting business rules, our Business Rules Server excels at extending the capabilities of your SOA.

Allowing business rules to be encapsulated in a simpler, more direct dialect and language closer to business analysts, ensures that the technology directly meets the enterprise’s business needs.
