Importing an OpenEdge Business Rules Vocabulary Definition (BRVD) file
OpenEdge developers can use Corticon for their business rules, using Progress Developer Studio to integrate their ABL projects with Corticon Decision Services. A schema exported from Progress OpenEdge can be imported and used as the basis for Vocabulary entities and attributes in Corticon Studio.
To import a Vocabulary definition created in OpenEdge into the Corticon perspective:
1. In the integrated OpenEdge/Corticon Eclipse development environment, choose the menu command Window > Open Perspective > Corticon Designer.
2. Choose the menu command File > New > Rule Project, name the project -- in this example, CorticonProject -- and then click Finish.
3. Choose the menu command File > New > Progress Corticon > Rule Project.
4. In the New Corticon Project wizard, specify the name and location of the project.
5. Optionally, add the project to working sets and selected project references.
6. Click Finish. The new project is created and displayed in the Project Explorer view.
7. Click on the project name, and then choose the menu command File > Import > Import
8. In the Import dialog, expand Progress Corticon, and then click on Business Rules Vocabulary Definition, as shown:
9. In the Business Rules Vocabulary dialog, locate the .brvd file -- in this example, ttApplicant.brvd, that was staged in the c:\temp folder -- that was created in OpenEdge.
10. Select Import, as shown:
11. Click Next.
12. Select the CorticonProject, and then enter the Vocabulary File name -- in this example, ttApplicant.ecore, as shown. (The name must have the .ecore extension.)
13. Click Finish.
14. Double-click on the .ecore file name in the Project Explorer to open it in the Corticon Vocabulary editor. The example looks like this:
15. Review the Vocabulary to ensure that it represents the exported data correctly.
The import processing of the OpenEdge BRVD file into a Corticon Vocabulary is complete.
You can now create and test Rulesheets and Ruleflows, and then publish a Decision Service to Corticon Server (such as the one that runs in an OpenEdge Web Server).
