Abstract

Business Processes describe operations of an organization.However, they do not take into account such aspects as detailed logic specification or process implementation. Business Rules are generally better suited for these purposes. Although there is ongoing research on integration of Business Processes with Business Rules, there is no standardized methodology for this integration.We propose a new method of providing visual rule modeling for specification of Business Process logic. In the paper, an outline of the integration of BPMN Business Processes with XTT2 Business Rules is sketched. The method allows for translating selected BPMN models to the XTT2 Business Rules, and executing them using the HeaRT rule engine.
