Indexing and optimization
The JBoss Enterprise BRMS engine implements the full Rete-OO algorithm with high-performance indexing and optimization, including the dynamic addition and removal of rules.
With CEP, JBoss Enterprise BRMS can add temporal rules that are fired within specified time periods or constraints.
A complete event model provides execution audit logging for regulatory compliance support and business event tracking and management.
Full lifecycle support
JBoss Enterprise BRMS leverages the jBPM 5 community project to support the entire lifecycle of the business process, from authoring through execution to monitoring and management.
Portable and standards-based
An embeddable, lightweight process engine supports native BPMN 2.0 execution.
Flexible manual task support
JBoss Enterprise BRMS provides a pluggable human task service based on WS-HumanTask—for tasks that need to be performed by human actors.
Process management is tightly integrated with business rules and event processing.
The JBoss Web 2.0-based authoring interface supports intuitive rule metaphors like decision tables and domain-specific rule languages, and BPMN 2.0-compliant process-flow diagramming, for fast, easy rule and process development. You can also author rules offline with tools like Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice Calc.
The JBoss Enterprise BRMS workbench IDE (part of JBoss Developer Studio) supports the Drools Rule Language (DRL) and BPMN 2.0 process modeling, and offers:
- Syntax coloring
- Code completion
- An outline view
- Rule validation, error reporting, and debugging
The IDE lets developers easily integrate rule-based applications with Java™ code and external information systems.
JBoss Enterprise BRMS includes a pluggable Java Content Repository (JCR)-compliant repository for rule definitions and process models that supports:
- Comprehensive and user-definable metadata for categorizing stored assets.
- Fine-grained user access controls.
- Version control for rules and process models.
It's accessible through the web and IDE tools, and from other applications via WebDAV and REST APIs.
JBoss Enterprise BRMS includes a powerful administrative facility for managing process instances, inspecting process information, and generating business reports. Comprehensive audit logs are maintained for traceability and compliance requirements.
You can deploy JBoss Enterprise BRMS with either JBoss Enterprise Application Platform or JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform, gaining the clustering, caching, failover, load-balancing, and distributed-deployment features expected in a best-of-breed BRMS.
You can also deploy the business rules engine in standalone mode (J2SE) or with other application servers, like Oracle WebLogic Server or IBM WebSphere Application Server.
Investing in JBoss Enterprise BRMS lets businesses reduce the time required to update applications, SOA deployments, and business processes with new business rules and policies as market conditions and regulatory environments change. Take full advantage of these capabilities by properly understanding the BRMS platform prior to implementation.
