Ensuring rule accuracy is an important part of rule development in WebSphere® Operational Decision Management. This article demonstrates how a dynamic domain populated from a Microsoft® Excel® file can be used to reduce inaccuracies when authoring rules. Using domains also eliminates dependencies on IT support for code changes because business users can extend the set of values in the domain by simple edits to the spreadsheet in the Decision Center. Further, because adding a domain value does not result in changes to service contracts, redeployment of rule services is not necessary.
