In Part 1, I presented a hybrid approach to solving Sudoku puzzles - an approach that combines business rules built using WebSphere Operational Decision Management (ODM) with a heuristic depth-first search algorithm. In this column, I'll focus on executing the rule application on the cloud. Can a web application leveraging a rule engine be deployed to a public cloud? If so, which rule integration pattern would we use? Which ODM components would we deploy? What level of execution performance can we expect? What challenges await us? These are the questions that this column seeks to answer for two widely available cloud offerings: Google App Engine™ and Amazon Web Services™.
