The purpose of Business Rules Management (BRM) Systems is to quickly enter and change business rules – and thus adapt to changed market factors. If several people are responsible for it and deploy the rules during live operation, e.g. via hot deployment, there is a clear risk that the integrity of the entire application will be affected. This is why it is particularly important in teamwork that the quality of the rules can be centrally and uniformly assured.
Automatic deployment of quality-assured rules:
To guarantee this, 'visual rules' now provides the 'Build Tools' component for the hot deployment of quality-assured business rules. After the rules have been modeled, the new enterprise functionality can be used to automate all production steps, guaranteeing that only those rules that are technically consistent and completely tested enter into productive use. These automated steps include rule execution, code generation, testing and deployment.
Test coverage analyses, reports and complete documentation of the rule project are available to check the success of automated tests. The test coverage analysis indicates whether all business rules have been tested. Other indicators of success for the tests run can be found in the reports that are output. Among other things, documentation is used to publish the deployed business rules and can be generated as HTML.
Integration into existing build and delivery processes
Business rules created with 'visual rules' can also be integrated into existing build and delivery processes. This is important for all companies practicing continuous integration.
Full re-use of business rules:
In addition to central quality assurance, the new version of 'visual rules' now also supports the complete re-use of rules and resources from one project in any other projects.
