Release Notes 5.4.1
OpenRules® Release 5.4.1 introduces a new version of Rule Solver™ for defining and solving constraint satisfaction and optimization problems. Rule Solver™ allows subject matter experts (not necessarily developers) to define and reconfigure their scheduling, resource allocation, and other complex constraint satisfaction problems directly in Excel by extending predefined OpenRules® templates. Then Rule Solver™ will automatically solve the proper problem using a standard constraint solver. Such combination of business rules and constraint programming provides OpenRules® customers with unprecedented power of solving decision support problems that are usually beyond the reach of pure rule engines.
Rule Solver™ comes with the detailed User Manual that includes many introductory examples. Rule Solver™ includes all JSR-331 jars (with 3 preliminary implementation solvers) available under open source licenses.
You may download the OpenRules® 5.4.1 from www.openrules.com/download.htm. Rule Solver™ is now available for public downloads together with the latest OpenRules® release from the Inside Track program.
