As you may have inferred from the lack of response, I don't think there is any experience with C++ or FlexScript.  There have been some papers on the theoretical alignment of RIF with transaction logics, which provide some notion of events.

The software is used in a hospital or a rest-home settlement. It helps assigning the correct caregivers to a call for help made by a patient so that these caregivers are used as efficient as possible. The rule set is included in the ontology and is written in Jena Rules.

We have to establish a smooth transition from RIF to the DES software, and if possible, also in the opposite direction.
