MANNING PRESS RELEASE
=======================
Manning Publications announces the release of:
Jess in Action
Java Rule-based Systems

by Ernest Friedman-Hill
Greenwich, Connecticut - Imagine a different way to program in which
rules and facts are specified instead of the usual linear set of instructions.
That's the idea in rule-based programming. This approach is ideal for
expressing business rules and is increasingly used in enterprise computing.
Jess is a popular rule engine written in Java. If a problem can be solved
with rules, "Jess in Action" will demonstrate how. The book is a practical
guide to rule-based system development in Java by the developer of Jess.
It covers concepts, the Jess language, and then progresses through a
series of fully-developed applications chosen to expose the reader to
practical rule-based development.
To read the table of contents, a sample chapter, and other content from the
book, visit http://www.manning.com/friedman-hill
Dr. Friedman-Hill is a Principal Member of the Technical Staff at Sandia
National Laboratories in Livermore, California. He is the developer of Jess.

come on Cindy... I wanted to announce my new book... *geez* :roll:
Ok.. I guess it's really Ernest Friedman-Hill book but we'll pretend they named the technology after little old me. (btw, make sure you say hi to Ernest if you see him -- he's been spotted helping out around bit).

Well, I tried to e-mail him, but the silly man did not provide an e-mail :roll:
At THIS rate he will NEVER know about the LOOOOOONG discussion that we are having about him in MO and what honors to bestow upon him.
Apparently there are those who think that granting him the title of "Author" is way understating his impact .
Of course I would probably just get his e-mail confused with Michael Ernest's anyway .

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
