BizTalk Server 2009 - Rule deployment issue
There is a small configuration issue with the Microsoft Business Rules Composer in BizTalk Server 2009.

Alexandre Alves wrote an interesting article on CEP extensions for Logic Programming (see http://adcalves.wordpress.c... in which he mentions the use of Rete-based rules engines. I gave a presentation at a conference last week (October Rules Fest 2009) on the differences and similarities between various event stream processing (ESP) approaches and the Rete algorithm.
