Title: Drools Expert and Guvnor: Java Rules Engine and Management

Abstract:The Drools project is an open-source Java project at JBoss about business rules, business processes and event processing. This presentation will give you an overview and demonstration of two core modules that are currently part of the Drools project.

* Drools Expert is the rule engine. It extracts complex decision logic from your application, such as price/discount calculations, insurance approvals and health care decisions. By defining that decision logic as business rules, it becomes easier read, change and support and actually faster to execute.

* Drools Guvnor is a centralized repository for Drools Knowledge Bases, with rich web based GUIs, editors, and tools to aid in the management of large numbers of rules.
