Implementing Business Rules

  • Edward G. Nilges


Many enterprise systems require the implementation of a large set of so-called business rules, which interact in complex ways and tend to be hard to change and hard to document. Junior programmers often think that as a program gets more complex, it will be necessarily larger and have more interactions, but Edsger Dijkstra’s 1968 discovery of structured programming shows that this isn’t necessarily the case. When a program gets to a certain level of complexity, its actual text can become radically simpler by thinking of logic as input data, and translating the input data to interpreted code.
