Zilonis - Rules Engine

(Back to docs.huihoo.com)


Zilonis provides a Multithreaded Rules Engine platform and a scripting environment for Java based applications. The core of the Zilonis platform is based on a variation of the forward chainning Rete algorithm described in "Rete: A Fast Algorithm for the Many Pattern/ Many Object Pattern Match Problem", Charles L. Forgy, Artificial Intelligence 19(1982), 17-37.). The implementations follows the optimizations and the structure used in the Soar system, and the ones well described in the paper: "Production Matching for Large Learning Systems", Robert B. Doorenbos. 1995 Multithreaded Capabilities A nice feature and contribution from Zilonis, is that it is multithreaded. Because of that, it is easy to reuse a set of rules across several concurrent users in a safe way, without creating copies of the rules and the engine, as you would have to do if you were to use other engines.
