RETE Engines Must Forward and Backward Chain?!

Posted on 03/06/10 16 Comments

In a new development for me, I recently learned that one of the criteria for a “RETE-based rules-engine” to actually be classified as “RETE” is that the software must perform both forward and backward chaining. A well respected rules professional just informed me: If [the rules-engine] is just forward chaining it’s not RETE because the [...]
