One thought on “I need to build a rule-engine for a dotnet WCF service”

  1. Hi Tarun

    I know the link is quite old but I was wondering if its really possible to use Drools (not Drools.net) in its full capacity behind wcf wrapper.

    FYI: I am trying to find out best way to implement a rule engine ( rather a BRMS) in .Net (so no paid like flexrule/Inrule)
