With just a few mouse clicks, the Rule Manager from Acumen Business imports a BizTalk rule policy and export the rules to the Windows Workflow Foundation format.
The export generates a complete Visual studio solutions. This includes the .rules file, the Business Object model and the code that calls Windows Worklow Engine.
And voila, here is the results of a CarDiagnosis example with the recommendation that I have to get 'Fuel'
It's just a console output, but you hopefully get the idea. It's an executable solution that can be incorporated into the IT infrastructure.
I don't think we can make it any easier.
What you need:
- Microsoft BizTalk 2006
- .NET 3.0 (this includes Windows Workflow Foundation)
- Acumen's Rule Manager with the BizTalk and Windows Workflow Foundation adapters
What you get:
- Your BizTalk rule policy converted to Windows Workflow Foundation. The best part is that the Windows Workflow Foundation is free and is included in the .NET 3.0 framework.
