Applying Complex Event Processing (CEP) with Drools Fusion

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011| 16:00 UTC, 12:00 Noon Boston, 9:00 San Francisco, 12:00 Midnight

Part of the JBoss Developer Webinar Series. 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month - Same Time, Same Place, More Great Content

Complex Event Processing is a relatively new technology, but it is changing the way enterprise solutions are

designed. CEP enabled solutions become aware of their running environment, both operational and business, and enable the applications to react to changes in real time. This session will present to attendees the concepts behind CEP and how it fits in the enterprise infrastructure to bring real-time awareness to business applications. It will detail what an Event Driven Architecture (EDA) is and how it complements Service
Oriented Architectures (SOA), enabling smarter decisions through Event Driven Business Process Management (edBPM) and event aware Business Rules. During the presentation, examples of the concepts applied to real use cases will be demonstrated using the JBoss Enterprise BRMS platform, more specifically the Drools Fusion module, to enable seamless integration between CEP and Business Rules.

After attending the session, attendees will know:

  • What CEP, EDA, edBPM, Business Rules and BAM are;
  • How EDA and CEP can be applied to design and develop applications that respond to the business environment events in realtime;
  • How JBoss middleware can help achieving that goal through JBoss Enterprise BRMS platform.
