Hi All --

There's a new rule engine endpoint on the web.

You can use it from your Java applications -- SOA style --  to load rules, run them, get explanations, and automatically generate and run networked SQL.  

Shared use of the endpoint is free.

The engine automatically combines forward and backward chaining to get the best of both methods, and further:

 *  The endpoint deals with rules expressed in executable, _open_ vocabulary English
     (This is not yet-another-controlled-English-system, but it can be used to manage taxonomies and ontologies.)

 *  Rules simply mean what they say, in English

 *  A collection of rules is more like a specification than a program

 *  If you change the order of the rules you will get the same results

 *  Networked SQL queries can be generated and run automatically from the rules

 *  English explanations of results are available on demand

 *  Since the rules are in English, they are findable on Google

To see how the endpoint works, please download and install a simple Java client stub program


plus its supporting program


(You can also optionally download the two corresponding .class files)

When you run the iblClient1 program, you can just type in steps 1, 2, 3... and it will demonstrate how it works. You will see it posting requests in http, and getting replies in simple xml. Steps 20-23 demonstrate how this works with an example that uses rules to query RDF, and to get explanations of the results.

You can then extend the stub with your own Java or other applications.

For background, you can run the same endpoint in an end-author end-user mode using a browser pointed to www.reengineeringllc.com .

For further background, please find papers, such as


presentations, FAQs, and tutorials, all at the same site.

Your comments, to internet.business.logic@xxxxxxxxx , would be much appreciated!
