In today's IT-driven business environment, new products and services can be delivered through changes in the business logic. In an agile business this business logic changes much more frequently than other application code. Often non-programmers like business analysts define the new logic. To model this reality in the application, software architects increasingly use business rules to separate business logic from application code. These rules provide a declarative way of expressing business logic so that even non- programmers can understand it.

Amila SuriarachchiArchitects also leverage SOA to provide agility -- modeling applications as reusable services that can be quickly configured into new applications. SOA and rules thus are natural companions in an agile enterprise.

The WSO2 Business Rules Server seamlessly integrates business rules and SOA by exposing rules as Web services.

Your presenter Amila Suriarachchi will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to Business Rules and specifically to Drools, the most widely-used rules engine
  • Demonstrate on how to create Web services using business rules through the WSO2 BRS administrative console
  • Illustrate how to expose a decision table, a widely used technique to write business rules, as a Web service.

Amila Suriarachchi, Architect and Product Manager for the WSO2 Business Rules Server is also currently working on WSO2 Event server, Axis2 and Sandesha2.
