Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) is a de facto IT standard programming interface. Using this interface you can connect your ODBC-enabled application to the USoft Developer rule server, and also to other ODBC drivers.
The ODBC interface defines the following:
The USoft Remote Rules Service API provides conceptual constraint, rules and authorization checking for external applications. It makes the USoft Developer conceptual processor accessible to all ODBC-enabled applications. The main benefit of using the USoft Remote Rules Service API is that you do not have to re-program all business rules if they change. This saves time, money and guarantees quality, because you only have to define and manage them in one place.
You can use the USoft Remote Rules Service API when you want to access data which is created and managed by a USoft application, using a third-party application, for example:
You could use the USoft Remote Rules Service API, for example, to bring data from the corporate database into your worksheet for analysis, reporting, and charting.
On Windows machines, the USoft Remote Rules Service API is provided as a DLL (Dynamic Link Library). The RDBMS type selected when installing USoft Production is also used by the USoft Remote Rules Service API.
