Sample text

An object is something with a name (identity) and responsibilities of three kinds: responsibilities for remembering values (attributes); responsibilities for carrying out actions (operations/methods); and responsibilities for enforcing rules concerning its attributes and operations (often referred to as constraints). An interface is a list of the services that an object offers. A type is such a list plus the rules that the object must obey (its specification). Contrast this with the notion of a class.

It is widely estimated that well over 90% of IT costs are attributable to maintenance of existing systems rather than to their development. This is one of the reasons that object-oriented and component based development is so attractive: when the implementation of a data structure or function changes, these changes do not propagate to other objects. Thus maintenance is localized to the changed component(s) or service(s). However, this benefit does not extend to changes to the business rules if they are scattered around the application or tightly bound to interface definitions.

This will substantially affect the type of BRMS product that they choose. 5 The Benefits The benefits of adopting a business rules management system may be summarized as follows: ■ Faster development. ■ Faster maintenance, which is particularly relevant in service oriented architectures, where the maintenance of a rules component is addressed outside of the wider IT maintenance context. ■ Clearer auditability. ■ More reusable business logic. 13 14 Chapter 1 ■ Greater consistency across the enterprise.
