Is OR mapping necessary for rule engine RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have one confusion regarding rule engines .

    Whether rule engines can be based on OR mapping tool only.I tried mosaico author to create a rule but it is asking for business objects residing in database.

    please let me know If a rule engine directly interact with database and stored procedures.Also please name the tool.

  • Bhaskar,

    There is no direct relation between rule engines and O/R mappers. So rule engines not necessarily are based on O/R mappers.
    O/R mapping is technology of persisting objects in the relational data base.
    Rule engine could be implemented without "real" objects, or objects could be persisted in some other way (active record).
    Sorry, I'm not using rule engines, so I can't suggest you anything.
