This is the third and final part of a three-part series, as follows:

In Part 2 we looked at how developers can use procedural attachments and 'directive events' to implement a simple form of backward chaining for Microsoft's Business Rule Engine.   In this third, and final, part, we will extend the code to tackle more complex backward-chaining requirements.   The 'simple name' goal pattern is fairly easy to understand, but is limited. It provides a coarse-grained mechanism for switching sets of rules 'on' and 'off' in a backward-chained fashion. When this model fits the problem, it can work well. However, many real-world problems requires a greater degree of expressivity.
