This becomes important for BRMS, as we will see in Chapter 7. It should be apparent that adding rulesets to components is all that is necessary to make them into agents. Forward chaining (data-driven) rulesets enable reactive agents and backward chaining (goal-driven) r´egimes support deliberative agents.

Thus a BRMS can act as a mediator between service oriented applications and the legacy; it smooths the interactions between applications and acts as the decision management component for applications that are implemented as a set of services. These services interact with a decision management service which incorporates a rule engine; this, in turn, has access to the repository. As the intent of each service is distinct, so too is the service’s use of rules. Two services might use a common rule, but both may have unique rules or processes related to that rule.
