Overview: Progress Corticon High Performance Batch Processor

When used alone, Corticon Business Rules Server ("Corticon Server") provides scalable, high performance transaction processing via a stateless, request/response architecture. This is ideally suited for online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, using either XML Web Services, or in-process Java or .NET. Using this architecture, a calling application sends a payload to a target decision service. The Corticon Server processes the payload by executing the rules within the target decision service, and then returns a response, including both resulting data and an audit trail indicating the rules that fired.
