Timely collaboration among businesses is required to achieve their common business goals. In this paper an event-condition-action (ECA) rule component is proposed to support the timely collaboration of web-based distributed business systems. The proposed component provides high level rule programming and event-based immediate processing so that system administrators and programmers can easily maintain the timely collaboration independently to application logic. It uses HTTP protocol to be applied through firewalls and is implemented using basic trigger facilities of a commercial DBMS for practical purpose.
