Implementation of the right set
Business rules can in turn be described as being:
behaviour of concepts in the
Business Domain. |
Applying an OO
solution to this it was seen that applying the BR directly to ACM class
as an operation: this way inheritance, collaboration, polymorphism etc
can be applied to the rules themselves. (This is described in more
the above model we can see applicability for rule sets and dependencies
can be a course grained tree (i.e. applicable to specific product/
market/ date etc). However for the rules themselves this applicability can
be much more subtle and expressing these as applicability trees becomes
much more impracticable, applicability must therefore be built into the
rule set itself.
then do we choose the right business rules?
Rule-sets drive which rule to choose
how business rules collaborate, and in what sequence.|
Same rule may have different behaviour or value when applied to
different concepts in business domain|
Here we are discussing what the
business sees as business rules. Architectural implications such as
routing logic are outside of the scope of this discussion.
