    • There is only one required OpenRules jar file and an optional OpenRules tools library
       
  • Support for Enterprise-class Business Rules Repositories:
    • A powerful hierarchy of inter-related Excel-based rulebooks can be located in a local file system or at a remote web site
    • A flexible and intuitive repository configuration interface that is suitable for business users
