A to Z of Business Rule Engine in BizTalk Server

Business rule engine can be used to dynamically add, edit, and delete business rules that are being applied to the business processes. Most of the time the business process remain the same but business logic changes, for example in a typical Loan processing example interest rate will change every day, discount will change, promotions may be given etc.

Business rules give business users (information workers) to control of business logic with any knowledge of coding and rebuilding the existing process.

I have found one presentation along with a wmv file on Microsoft website which describes a Business Rule Engine in detail. It covers each topic and fact related to Business Rule Engine deeply. This presentation is related to BizTalk Server 2004 but we can relate the same in BizTalk Server 2006.

Following are the topics covered in this presentation
  • Introduction to Business Rule Engine
  • Developing a business rule
  • Invoking rules from orchestration
  • Advance Concepts (describing different execution models, design pattern, architecture and scalability)
  • Rules and orchestrations

You can view/download both the WMV/PPT files by visiting the given link below.

Note: If you are trying to view the WMV file online, make sure that you have disabled pop up blocker for this site.
