Innovations Softwaretechnologie today announces the release of version 3.4 of the Visual Rules Business Rules Management System. Visual Rules is used to graphically model business rules and generate program code as well as documentation of these rules. In doing so, transparent mapping is of central importance in order to efficiently adapt the business logic of business processes to changed market factors.
What's new is that business rules can now also be used in SOA independent of platform. For this Visual Rules generates Web Services from rule models at the click of a button. These can be centrally deployed and administered on a J2EE compliant Rule Server. Visual Rules provides mechanisms for the hot deployment of rule code and Web Services in order to replace business rules without interruption during continuous operation - independent of the release cycles of the applications in which they are used.
The version package includes a web server that can be used to test Web Services locally. Deployed resources can be optionally monitored via an easy-to-use graphical interface within the development environment or via a web interface.
The Visual Rules BRMS makes it possible to quickly enter, visualize and modify business rules. Business rules can be modeled together with the customer or subject area experts. The conception stage in the development of customer and user oriented software solutions is significantly shortened, while the quality of business logic is sustainably increased. Automatic tests in the graphical model also contribute to a noticeable reduction in the time and effort spent testing.
