The Business Rules Engine
Oracle Tips by Burleson

Currently, Oracle requires developers to code the logic to support business rules inside stored PL/SQL objects. While this is a tremendous advantage over the repeating logic inside multiple applications, a change in a business rule still requires the intervention of an application developer to change the code.

It’s possible to design an application that stores business rules and code applications that dynamically enforce business rules based on the current state of each rule within the database. While this is certainly not an easy task, the resulting system enables new rules to be implemented quickly and easily (typically through a GUI interface with the database).

In the future, developers can expect the Oracle database to evolve into a system more friendly to this type of application. Perhaps Oracle9 will incorporate a configurable rules engine that dynamically interprets data based on business rules stored in the engine!

This is an excerpt from the book "High Performance Oracle Database Automation" by Jonathan Ingram and Donald K. Burleson, Series Editor.
