What features are currently supported?

Hello,

I am new to SAP Business Rules and I am interested in an overview of the currently supported functionalities provided by the EHP 1 NetWeaver CE 7.1 Business Rule Engine. I am a bit confused since the Yasu website seems to be no longer maintained and not all features have already been integrated into NW that have been provided by QuickRules.

I already found out that decision flows will be supported with EHP 2.

I give you a few examples, so you know the kind of information I am interested in:

- support for decision trees

- web-based BRMS that allows versioning of rule sets

- access / authorization control for rule sets, to control who can modify them

- support for DB data retrieval within rule conditions

- support for accumulation functions within rule conditions

- debugging or rules in the IDE (breakpoints, analysis of facts currently in the rule engine's working memory)

I guess this kind of information is somewhere around here, but I could not find it after 3 hours of browsing through the tutorials and info material.

Would be great if you point me to the right location.

Many thanks,

John

    • Hello John,

      The documents you require are not yet available, it will be provided along with EhP1.

      Here, I will try to answer the list of questions you had asked previously -

      - support for decision trees

      - web-based BRMS that allows versioning of rule sets

      - access / authorization control for rule sets, to control who can modify them

      The above three features, i.e sequential decision making capabilities, web based BRMS and change management, according to the roadmap will be available with EhP2.

      - debugging or rules in the IDE (breakpoints, analysis of facts currently in the rule engine's working memory)

      There will be rules testing provided with SAP Netweaver BRM EhP2 which will help you in validating the rules written, verifying the sequence of execution of rules.

      - support for accumulation functions within rule conditions

      I am sorry but i didn't understand this query of yours. Can you give me an example for this case?

      Regards,

      Arti
