Developing Rules Applications with Red Hat JBoss BRMS (JB463) teaches rule developers and Java™ enterprise application developers how to create, test, debug, and control business rules, how to generate rules packages, and how the Red Hat JBoss BRMS [business rules management system] runtime environment executes rules. Students will use Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 7 and Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6 to perform detailed, hands-on exercises that enable them to create and manage business rules in a production environment. The principles in this course can be applied to implementing a standalone Red Hat JBoss BRMS solution or a Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite [business process management] solution.
During this course, students will be:
Describe the architecture and business need for Red Hat JBoss BRMS.
Author basic business rules using Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.
Describe the purpose and layout of a spreadsheet decision table, and identify how JBoss BRMS loads the decision table at runtime.
Describe the purpose of domain-specific languages (DSLs), how to declare them, and how to use them in a rule.
Verify that given appropriate facts, a rule will be matched and actioned.
Test rules with Junit.
Describe and use in rules.
Implement rule management and rule integration into an application and call the rule server at runtime.
Describe and implement conflict resolution strategies in rule execution.
Describe the process of debugging Drools applications in Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.
Describe and use complex event processing with rules.
Optimize the processing and performance of rule execution at runtime.
