Drools

Java Rules Engine

DotNet Print

Drools.NET - 3.0 is released. Please visit http://droolsdotnet.codehaus.org/ for more information.





Introducing Drools.Net - 2.1 (Beta).

The Drools.NET is a .NET port for Drools, which is a Rules Engine implementation based on Charles Forgy's Rete algorithm tailored for the Java language. Drools.NET enables .NET developers/Users to exploit the powerful Rule Engine like Drools through a completely managed .NET code base. Rules can be written in any .NET language ((C#, VB.NET, J#, etc.) that can target the CLR(Version 2).
