Validating business rules
Stardust provides Business Rules Management for defining rules to maintain business logic separately from application code.A business rule defines actions that are performed when certain conditions are satisfied in the input data.Rules are easier to read than code and thus more understandable by non-technical users like business analysts as the impact on the rest of the application is easier to overlook for rules than for a complete program.Rules execution differs from Message Transformations in Message Transformations are executed by performing all mappings between input and output data in a strict order, whereas rules are executed based on data content and priority.Such formal vocabularies and rules can be interpreted and used by computer systems.SBVR is an integral part of the OMG's model-driven architecture (MDA).Hardcoding is then not a good option since it removes the business logic and places it in the hands of developers and locks it into applications - the same argument that applies to other types of business rules.
The Constraint Language in XML (CLi X) deals with , that is, constraints that define the validity of XML documents.
In computer science, data validation is the process of ensuring that a program operates on clean, correct and useful data.
It uses routines, often called "validation rules" "validation constraints" or "check routines", that check for correctness, meaningfulness, and security of data that are input to the system.
The rules may be implemented through the automated facilities of a data dictionary, or by the inclusion of explicit application program validation logic.
Data validation is intended to provide certain well-defined guarantees for fitness, accuracy, and consistency for any of various kinds of user input into an application or automated system.
The Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules (SBVR) is an adopted standard of the Object Management Group (OMG) intended to be the basis for formal and detailed natural language declarative description of a complex entity, such as a business.
