As the new brdoc Schema gets explored and implemented, I receive questions on the intention of one or another construct in it.
I have written an article in frames of the Mekon‘s Bitesize on Business Rules series to share the reasons behind the structures and element names in the Schema for the primary business rules constructs: Business Rules Decision Points and the Business Rules Decisions. There is a seeming discrepancy in the way we (at the Business Rules Working Group, BRWG) have structured it: one having a dedicated element and the other not. But the deliberate and conscious decisions on the part of those who developed and reviewed the Schema stand boldly for the reasons behind this and I wanted to share them with all who might be interested.
At the end of this article, you will also find an invitation to a webinar (planned for June 28) with the title “S1000D is More than a PDF file, default BREX, and XML Schemas.”
