Re: Strawman OPES Charter
A completely different alternative for the rules language can be based
on an existing language/runtime (say Java based). However the approach
taken by Java for specifying rules (see Jess,JSR) is very "Constraint
Logic Programming' type - which I beleive may be an overkill for the
OPES framework. Other rules-based frameworks are similarly very complex.
What we need is just a means of scripting out the rules - P may work!
Also, after somewhat freezing the charter (atleast in concept) about the
'P' applicability - limiting the usage to the OPES administrator (as
opposed to rules authored by client or content provider ) ; 'P' seems to
have the core stuff. May require some enhancements and more
complementary specifications for interfacing things and so on..
I would go with (b) or (c) while preferring (c) since it is less work
