To bridge the gap between business analysts and developers, most companies nowadays rely on Business Process Management (BPM). When controlling progressively more complex business processes, the connection between business rules and BPM gains a tremendous importance. Currently, the most popular BPM tools are JBPM, an extensible workflow engine written in pure JAVA, and DROOLS, an expert system framework, that uses rules for knowledge representation. It is possible to combine JBPM and DROOLS. However, there are still flaws with the verification and the update of knowledge bases, and in particular with building more complex knowledge structures.
