Download OpenRules Decision Manager from AWS Marketplace. Click on this button
to get OpenRules Decision Manager from AWS Marketplace using a SaaS Subscription. This “Pay-As-You-Go” subscription allows you to pay a minimal fee for only what you actually use with all charges coming from Amazon.
With your AWS account you will subscribe to “OpenRules Business Rules and Decision Management Services” that includes 30,000 free trial executions that gives you enough time for a free evaluation.
When your free trial is about to expire, you will receive a warning email and you’d be able to cancel your subscription at anytime. Otherwise, you will start paying a minimal transaction fee of $0.025 only when you actually execute OpenRules-based services – see Pricing Considerations.
NOTE. Alternatively, you may send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org to justify your need for a free stand-alone evaluation version that doesn’t require an AWS subscription. You will be provided the proper download link.
To subscribe, you need to have an AWS Marketplace account, sign in, and click on the button “Continue to Subscribe” from this AWS Marketplace website:
After clicking on “Subscribe”, you will see:

Enter your name and click on “Download”. You will receive a personalized version of the latest OpenRules Decision Manager in one zip file “OpenRulesDecisionManager_8.1.x.zip” that you unzip on your hard drive. You will get the folder “openrules.samples” that contains everything you need to learn about how OpenRules decision models are organized, how to build, test, and deploy them, and finally how to develop your own operational decision models.
What To Do After Download. First, make sure that you have JDK 1.8 or higher installed – see the above Pre-Requisites.
If you use MS Windows:
To install the latest OpenRules Decision Manager on your computer, you need to execute “install.bat” from “openrules.samples/openrules.config” – just double-click on this file from your File Manager.
You need to have Internet connection as the installation will download different related products freely available for downloads. The installation may take up to 1-2 minutes based on your connection speed displaying all downloadable files at the “black” screen. There should be no red messages and the successful installation will show at the end
If you use Linux or Mac OS:
The main difference with Windows is that to start any execution, you will use scripts like “install”, “clean”, “run” instead of “install.bat”, “clean.bat”, “run.bat”.
Open a Terminal window and go to the unzipped folder “openrules.samples” and then to the sub-folder “openrules.config”. Enter commands:
>chmod +x install
It will install OpenRules and at the end you should receive a message “OpenRules Decision Manager x.x.x Initialized” similar to the above one.
Note. If you are not an admin use “>sudo chmod +x install” and “>sudo ./install”.

Build and Run Decision Models. You can build and test a decision model by a simple double-click on the file “run.bat“. For Mac or Linux, use the script-file “run“. When you try it for the first time, you may need to confirm that it’s safe to execute this script.
If you make any changes in your Excel tables or configuration files, it will automatically re-build the model before running its tests. If it finds any errors, it will display them using the business terms pointing to the corresponding places in your Excel files.
After the successful build, “run.bat” will test your model against test-cases described in the file “Test.xls”. When you execute the decision model, the Decision Manager produces a user-friendly execution protocol and explanation reports in the HTML format in the generated folder “report“. Some decision models (e.g. HelloJava) use data instances created not in Excel but using the existing Java classes.
You may do all work within the folder “openrules.samples” using the standard File Manager – no technical knowledge is required. Technical people may import all projects into their favorite IDE such as Eclipse.
You can use your OpenRules Decision Manager to create your own decision services and deploy them on-premise or on cloud using your preferable deployment options: AWS Lambda functions, RESTful Web Services, or Docker images. Wherever you deploy your decision model, every execution of this service will be reported to the AWS Marketplace metering service. Based on your actual number of executions and the above Pricing, AWS Marketplace will provide you with accurate monthly bills. All charges will go through AWS and you have an option to cancel your subscription at anytime.
