GoogleFight : Drools vs "JBoss Rules" vs "Blaze Advisor" vs JRules

Bruno Duarte mentioned GoogleFight as a humorous way of looking at the popularity of keywords for Drools vs "JBoss Rules", for fun I also plugged in "Blaze Advisor" and JRules and pasted the screenshots below. Of course the results are pretty meaningless, especially as Drools is also a generic word; but it was still fun watching the fights :)

  1. Google metrics are fun! Of course, adding a discriminator like "rule engine" makes the Drools index only 179,000, versus say JESS with 363,000! [And all are shamed by the sequential rule engine giving 1.45M].
