Automatic decision making is becoming more critical in content management systems. Externalizing decision logic from core application logic allows business rules to be managed and changed quickly to cope with dynamic business needs. IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules, a business rule management system (BRMS), provides the capabilities to author, deploy, and manage business rules so that managers can make better decisions, and make them more quickly. The integration of IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules and IBM Content Manager Enterprise Edition extends the reach of a content management solution for more effective management of business decisions within an organization.

This article describes how to integrate IBM Content Manager Enterprise Edition with IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules. Following an overview of the event framework and a brief introduction to ILOG JRules business rule management system, the article uses a loan scenario to illustrate how to write a custom event handler for integrating ILOG JRules with a content management application.
