dc.description.abstractThe present report describes the approach and two technical solutions for interoperation between business rules represented in various formats. Semantic Web techniques have been deployed to make such interoperation work. One of the interoperation methods uses the Java Interoperation Object (JIO) described in the context of Positional-Slotted Knowledge (POSL), which is a human-friendly variant of the Rule Markup Language (RuleML), and Notation 3 (N3) representations. Details of the connections between these representations are demonstrated with the use of query-based interoperation between POSL and N3. Another solution described in the report is conversion of business rules stored in Microsoft Excel as decision tables into POSL using OpenL tablets. Although the current business rules interoperation framework involves three formats (Excel, POSL, and N3), it can be extended to other representations through appropriate conversions of data in rule bases and queries.
