ILOG Launches New Business Rule Studio for Eclipse

ILOG Launches New Business Rule Studio for Eclipse

ILOG has just introduced its new Business Rule Studio Developer Edition (BR Studio). Built entirely on the Eclipse IDE and based on ILOG JRules, BR Studio will, for the first time, provide Java software developers with the opportunity to develop business rule technology using the Eclipse IDE, bringing the power of BRMS to mainstream software development organizations using Eclipse technology. ILOG, the first business rule technology vendor to support Eclipse, announced its membership in the Eclipse Vendor Consortium earlier this year. BR Studio is being made available as a free download that streamlines the evaluation process for Java/Eclipse developers.

Software developers are discovering that business rule technology, especially a BRMS, allows them to reduce software maintenance costs associated with embedded legacy code, eases transitions to service-oriented architectures (SOA) and empowers business users to easily implement new business policies and keep them current - all at lower cost. Yet developers typically must acquire specific knowledge and training in business rule methodologies and tools to integrate and leverage business rule technology into their applications. Because BR Studio is based on Eclipse, it reduces the learning curve and development time associated with implementing business rule technologies.

"As business rule management systems are becoming increasingly important to enterprise Java applications, the availability of ILOG BR Studio will give Java developers using Eclipse a significant new productivity tool for leveraging these systems to create more flexible enterprise architectures," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director, Eclipse Consortium.

ILOG BR Studio enables business rule authoring, testing, and debugging, including all the features needed for developers to evaluate business rule technology for Java/J2EE applications. Key features include:

  • Rule Project, a new project type in Eclipse that allows developers to manage business rules just like Java code.
  • A business rule editor with content assist contextual help and real- time error checking for easy rule authoring.
  • An embedded rule engine for rapid prototyping and rule execution
  • Integrated tools that allow debugging across Java source code and business rules, simplifying the testing and quality assurance process for rule-based applications.

    ILOG Business Rule Studio is available immediately via Web download and requires Eclipse 2.1 or WebSphere Application Developer 5.1. For more information, and to download the product, visit http://brstudio.ilog.com/. Deployment of business rule applications requires separate deployment licenses of the full version of ILOG JRules, sold separately.

    That''s great news. We evaluated ILOG last year and found out that it requires a deep learning curve to use it effectively. I''ll definitely download the Ilog Rule Studio and see if Ilog has made their product any easier to use.

    IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
