Selecting an appropriate rules-based engine requires balancing many different, and often, not well-understood properties such as business rules representation methods, rule history and life cycle management, and interoperability with external data sources.
The Handbook of Research on Emerging Rule-Based Languages and Technologies: Open Solutions and Approaches provides a comprehensive collection of state-of-the-art advancements in rule languages, containing methodologies for building rule-based applications, rule interoperability and interchange, and rule-based applications. Developers of rule-based languages and technologies as well as users of these applications will find this Handbook of Research to be a significant resource within the field.
