In this paper, by combining Drools rule engine and Web Service technology in Axis2 architecture, we proposed a solution to solve the problem that Drools could not deal with the data object in Web Service environment directly. This solution could help enterprise use Rule Engine technology and Web Service technology in a simple and effective way. It satisfies that enterprise can respond quickly to the changes of business rules, and greatly improves the reusability of business rules.
