Ernest, what other tools do you find works particularly well with Jess ?
Perhaps it is easier to create an interface with Jess than it might be with other rule engines.
If you could elaborate on what you were working in some of those cases that may be a good demo ?
regards

Would Jess work with Eclipse for instance ?

I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Can you develop Jess-based software using Eclipse? Yes, absolutely; as a matter of fact, as I wrote in another thread, the next release of Jess will include a new Jess IDE made up of Eclipse plug-ins.
Jess is primarily intended as a Java library. It's designed to be embedded in other software, and it tries hard to be unobtrusive and not to dictate an architecture. Thus, it more or less integrates well with everything.

That's curious. It's usually the other way round. Eclipse made up of proprietary plug-ins.

If you're saying that it's unusual for commercial plugins to be intended for an open-source IDE, it's not unusual at all -- it's becoming very common for Eclipse, anyway. IBM's own WSAD is basically that, isn't it? I'm also aware of quite a few other companies that are either selling enhanced Eclipse environments (MyEclipse), or have written IDEs for their products as Eclipse plugins (AMZI Prolog). The really great thing about this is that the new tools integrate with your existing tools -- so you'll have Jess language tools right next to your familiar Java tools, and will be able to include Jess files in your Java projects.

Thanks, Ernest. That answered my original question. Just an observation. I was just interested in how Jess integrates with other work. But I see that you have addressed this.
