I tend to see more and more clients using Rule Engines now then I did in the past. So, what can we expect to see different and better in Biztalk 2006?

At the BPI Conference two weeks ago we found out some of the new enhanced features that the Business Rules Engine would have in Biztalk 2006.

Some of these are:

– Ability to be installed without Biztalk

– No longer needs to be called inside an Atomic Scope

– Document type will try to be auto populated when you add a schema from an existing Biztalk project (this is great – until it gets it wrong)

– Ability to have debug information written to file at run time

Of course, these can change before the final release of the product early next year.
