Welcome to JLisa.
What is JLisa?
JLisa is a rule engine, also known as a "production system".
Most production systems are expensive. They range in price from a few
to tens of thousands of dollars.
JLisa strives to be a more accessible alternative. It is free.
As such JLisa is an Open Source library working on GPL (GNU Public
(JLisa stands for Java Lisp-based intelligent software agents.) More on
this at: http://jlisa.sourceforge.net
JLisa is the re-union of common lisp and Clips, exposed through a Java
If you recall Clips: http://www.ghg.net/clips/CLIPS.html was created
machines or machines running Lisp, did not have the power or speed to
expert systems back in the early 80's. Therefore, Clips was created in
C and optimized
to run with a smaller and faster footprint with a Lisp-like syntax, a
mini Lisp for
production systems of sorts.
Well, times have changed, and given the computing power available to
it is possible to reunite Lisp with Clips, this provides JLisa, with the
of Lisp and Clips available to programmers:
* lambdas (first order functions)
* CLOS (Common Lisp Object System)
This gives programmers access to a full multi-paradigmic environment
logical, functional and prescriptive programming.
JLisa also complies with JSR000094, the Java rule engine guideline.
Thanks for your support.
