The ServiceMix Drools component provides JBI integration to the Drools Rules Engine. It can be used to deploy a rules set that will implement a router or an actual service. A router will mostly act as a transparent proxy between the consumer and the target service provider mad will mostly be implemented by the jbi.route(uri) method below. This method creates a new exchange identical to the one received by the component and will send it to the specified destination. You can also send back a Fault if needed. A router can also be implemented by using directly the JBI Apis (available with the jbi helper) by using the provided client.
