The typical workflow to model your rules using the rules composer is as shown below:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

You perform the following steps to model rules:

  1. Create a rules composer development component.

    You create a rules composer development component to model your rules in it.

  2. Configure the rules composer DC.

    You need to configure the rules composer DC with the business terms you will use to model your rules. You can either have the business terms in an XML schema or in the form of Java classes. You then add the XML schema and the Java classes to the rules composer DC. You can also use the Definitions feature to create business terms.

  3. Create a ruleset.

    You create a ruleset to group business rules that govern a specific function.
