Light Weight Database Driven Rules Engine With Eric Notheisen

Join me and the Enterprise Developers Guild on Tuesday, November 24, at 6:00 PM in the Mt. Kilimanjaro Room at the Charlotte Microsoft Campus to learn how to build a light weight database driven rules engine by our very own Eric Notheisen.

This presentation will provide information on a database driven business rules engine. What makes this application light weight is that all you need to do to add a business rule is: one, create a rule project; two, compile it independently from the solution; three, add it to the bin folder of your service or application and make the appropriate entries in your database. The entries in the database will identify the rules available to run, the conditional elements for using a give rule and rule succession information.

The technologies that will be demonstrated are: The Abstract Factory Pattern; The Chain Of Responsibility Pattern; Controlling the Abstract Factory with Reflection; LINQ To Objects and LINQ To Xml. A working model of the rules engine will be made available for download with appropriate documentation.
