JEFF is an explanation facility framework written in Java. Explanation facilities date from the era of expert systems (ES), where they were used in order to provide an explanation about the inference process. The explanation they provided was supposed to clarify how the ES reached its conclusions or why it asked some question during fact acquisition. Nowadays, traditional ES development environments ("shells") have been replaced by rule engines (RE) and business rule management systems (BRMS), which seem to lack explanation facility functionality. JEFF was created in order to remedy this.
Sight is a Java Web framework built on top of J2EE technologies, and particularly on top of the servlet API. SightWF provides a simple programming model for building RIA applications. SightWF is initially designed to be deployed on Google App Engine, and can be run in a J2EE servlet container such as Tomcat.
