Getting started

This guide steps through the procedures for running the Corticon Java Server as a Web Services server, deploying Ruleflows to the Server, exposing the Ruleflows as Decision Services, and then testing them with document-style SOAP requests. There are other installation, deployment and integration options available beyond the SOAP/Web Services method described here, including Java-centric options using Java objects and APIs. More detailed information on all available methods is contained in the Integration & Deployment Guide.
