This article addresses a recurring question for the solution architect using a Business Rule Managment System (BRMS): how should I structure the rule repository and then carve out the rulesets from this repository in order to support the needed rule services? We explore different alternatives for mapping the rule repository and the rulesets to rule services, and provide the pros and cons of each approach. We then illustrate the use of one alternative for the design of a risk assessment decision service, typically occurring in financial services type of applications.
