Innovations Softwaretechnologie today announces the release of the new version of the ‘visual rules’ Business Rules Management System. Its motto is ‘Test Driven Business Rules Management.’
Today many companies across the world are graphically modeling their business rules using ‘visual rules’ and integrating them into a variety of different architectures, e.g. in SOA. 'Visual rules’ makes it possible to quickly compose, visualize and modify business rules. They can thus be efficiently adapted to changed market factors.
What’s new is the automatic monitoring of test coverage directly in the rule model. This further simplifies quality assurance of business rules. 'Visual rules’ indicates which percentage of the business rules are covered by the tests and whether all required tests are defined. It also highlights the rules for which tests are still missing.
Users can now also easily trace individual test cases: The test data and expected results are displayed in parallel for this. Enhanced documentation options also simplify traceability at a later point in time.
Starting with this version, 'visual rules’ is compatible with Eclipse 3.2. The other new features are described at www.visual-rules.com.
'Visual rules’ is today being used by many customers across the world and represented by an international partner network. A selection of the references are the U.S. company Wyndham, offering luxury hotel & resort accommodations; the German HypoVereinsbank (part of the UniCredit); Deutsche Boerse Systems; the producer of agricultural machinery Claas; Zafin Labs, an IT service provider located in the UAE and the Australian software specialist MobileSelect. The range of applications includes an early warning system for trading of credit default swaps, the calculation of transaction billing and online advisory services for mobile plans.
