I have recently been a reviewer for Michal Bali’s new book on Drools (Drools JBoss Rules 5.0 Developer’s Guide), which will soon be generally available. In the meantime you could check out an example of the style by reading this two part article on Drools JBoss Rules 5.0 Flow – Part 1 and Part 2. Michal’s book is intended for developers getting up to speed on Drools.
Now if you are looking for a business friendly introduction to Drools you should definitely check out Paul Browne’s book JBoss Drools Business Rules. This an excellent and very approachable book. There’s an article extracted from the book on testing here.
I plan to write longer reviews of both books over the summer but thought I would give them a quick plug now.
Of course, if you want to understand how to use rules in the broader context of Decision Management you should read Smart (Enough) Systems, the book I wrote with Neil Raden.
