What’s BRF+? ABAPers should know that?

BRFplus is a rule engine developed in ABAP. It provides a comprehensive API and UI for defining and processing business rules.[Albrecht, T.].

When the idea of using this tool at the project I’m working on was raised, I started learning more about it.

But my first doubt was: “Why an ABAP developer should know about a complex BPM system?”  I was making myself this question when I get to the point that a simple customizing table can be developed in BRF+ and take advantage of all BRF+ features.

Would you like to know why and what are those advantages? Check this

Carsten Ziegler blog post: How to Kill Custom Code and Z-Tables

“BRFplus is a not a lightweight product. It is a complete business rules management system that allows you to create, manage, and deploy simple and complex rules in an ABAP environment.”[Albrecht, T.]

That been said, you are not going to install this product only to skip a couple of customizing table.

      Hi Gustavo,

      Applaud the desire and certainly welcome another person who is interested in blogging in this area. 

      However I gather you are new to blogging on SCN and perhaps might value a few pointers?

      Firstly - just because you have put something in your own space doesn't mean others can't see it. Once you Publish it is visible to all. 

      If you aren't ready to publish use Save which will save it as a draft (you can access drafts from your profile > Content tab > and choose Drafts in the left hand navigation pane.

      Secondly - the correct space to publish on this topic is Business Rules Management. If you want people to notice your content, it's always best to put it in the space that your target audience watches.

      Lastly, you might want to consider a little more content.  The above seems somewhat unfinished? Perhaps you were interrupted?  The best advice here is to look at what others are blogging in this space to get an idea of what's expected. Tobias Trapp is a particularly good example in the business rules management space.

      Good luck with your future content
