Highly recommended for newbies on the topic, if you have some knowledge, this becomes more like a wiki page when you forgot basic things.

I first met Carsten at SAP TechEd in 2009 as he presented BRFplus. I was impressed then by the capability of both Carsten and his product. I have spent the last 8 years promoting business rules and helping companies use business rules technology, like BRFplus, to automate and improve business decisions as Neil Raden and I described in Smart Enough Systems: How to Deliver Competitive Advantage by Automating Hidden Decisions.

SAP is adopting business rules and BRFplus in its applications - showing how mainstream the approach has become in recent years. BRFplus is unique because it is a business rules management system specifically designed to work as a part of an SAP enterprise backbone. But BRFplus is a not a lightweight product - it is a complete business rules management system that allows you to create, manage and deploy simple and complex rules in an ABAP environment - so a book on how it works is timely and welcome.

The book contains a succinct but thorough definition of business rules and business rules management systems followed by a walk-through of the whole product and a quick tutorial to help you build your first BRFplus application. Anyone considering using BRFplus at any level will find these chapters helpful in getting familiar with the product. Two more technical chapters discuss how BRFplus handles objects, especially the objects being manipulated in SAP applications, and the core elements of BRFplus (rulesets, expressions, functions and actions). These more reference-oriented chapters will be useful as you develop more complex solutions with BRFplus as will those that cover the administration tools and performance/integration considerations. The book concludes with a set of deployment patterns and a high-level outline of a suitable methodology for developing rules-based systems.

Carsten and Thomas have written a detailed yet readable description of BRFplus. The book covers everything from the web-based user interface for non-technical users to the technical details of the integration APIs. If you plan to use business rules to extend and manage your SAP Business Suite applications, which I highly recommend, this book will show you how to do so.

Note: I provided a foreword to this book.

This book has lots of helpful information though it is a bit outdated now that SAP has released multiple updated versions of BRF+ that have made some of the methods and capabilities mentioned outdated. But overall this book I have found to still be very helpful valuable, especially with no other books out there covering the same topic.
