What's the big deal with the business rules approach?

FAQ #17

  • What's the big deal with the business rules approach?
  • What's wrong with the traditional hard-coding approach?
  • How do business rules compare to hard-coded rules?

ANSWER

The problems with traditional hard-coded or hard-wired rules include:

  • Duplicate rules must be coded & maintained in many systems
  • It's hard to isolate rules from code during maintenance
  • It's even harder to change and test applications
  • It takes months to change ‘hard-coded’ business logic
  • Redundant development & maintenance costs

The benefits of the business rules approach include:

  • Shared rules (Reuse)
  • Rules coded once
  • Rules are isolated from code
  • Externalizing rules results in smaller applications
  • Smaller applications make it easier to change and test applications
  • It takes days to change business rules = Faster Time to Market
  • Lower Development & Maintenance costs
