Part 1 (Excerpt - Brian Du Preez)
This series of posts will be about me getting to grips with JBoss Drools. The reasoning behind it is: SAP bought out my company's current rules engine and Drools is one alternative we will be looking into as soon as someone has the skills to get a proof of concept up.
Although there seems to be a fair amount of documentation, I always find it helps having walked through examples, which is what I am going to do here.Drools on first glance can be quite daunting, it is made up of :
Drools Expert (rule engine)
Being a developer this is where I will begin, the actual rules and implementation of them.
The other parts I'll get to later are:
Drools Guvnor (BRMS/BPMS)
Drools Flow (process/workflow)
Drools Fusion (event processing/temporal reasoning)
Drools Planner (automated planning)
So to begin.
For part 1, I just want to get my feet wet, I download only the Eclipse plugin and the binaries
