Broken Rules Jason Hyland throws mud at the BizTalk 2004 Rules Engine & API, and sees which bits stick…

Has anybody seen a Vocabulary API for the rule engine? No? That's probably because it seems to either be on its way out or never made it in the first place. According to the BizTalk SDK  "The following objects are exposed by Microsoft(r) BizTalk(r) Server 2004, but are not used in BizTalk Server programming." These include the following from the Microsoft.RuleEngine Namespace

  • Vocabulary
  • VocabularyDefinition
  • VocabularyDefinitionDictionary
  • VocabularyDictionary
  • VocabularyInfo
  • VocabularyInfoCollection
  • VocabularyLink

All under the heading of "Unsupported BizTalk Classes". So, I guess that means not to use them! Our guys are in the middle of doing a Biztalk Proof of Concept with MS at Reading, so I hope to get an answer on this!

I would really like to know if it is possible to get the actual facts from the Vocabulary.

It would be great to be able to, not only use rules, but also use facts in code. Like "sum = price * amount * GetFact("Tax")" or something like that.
