Just because the Corticon Server is running does not mean it is ready to process transactions. It must still be loaded with one or more Ruleflows. Once a Ruleflow has been loaded, or deployed, to the Corticon Server we call it a Decision Service because it is a service ready and able to make decisions for any external application or process (client) that requests the service properly.

Compile and deploy APIs and command line utilities, - These methods require more expertise in development tools, and are not discussed in this guide. For more information, see the topics in Packaging and deploying Decision Services .
All these methods are described more thoroughly in the Server Integration & Deployment Guide.
