RIF-PRD implementation report according to 
http://www.w3.org/2005/rules/wiki/Implementations:

1. Contacts: Changhai Ke, Christian de Sainte Marie, Colleen McClintock, 
IBM
2. No URL yet.
3. Implementation of RIF-PRD using IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules (proof of 
concept state).
This is implemented as a translator. It operates in 2 directions: from 
RIF-PRD XML format to WebSphere ILOG JRules rule language, and the 
reverse. The translator is written in Java. Due to some limitations in the 
RIF-PRD format (to be detailed later), the translator has been made to 
operate with some configuration files. An object model on the RIF/PRD 
concepts has been built to serve as intermediary pivot model for the 
translator.
4. The translator has been tested using complete rule bases, which are 
quite simple, but operational. We do not have time yet to go through all 
the RIF-PRD test cases, and doing so, we will certainly discover some new 
issues in the translator or in the test cases. Although we have strong 
interest to make this translator compliant, we are unsure that RIF-PRD is 
usable enough and it is highly possible that we encounter blocking issues.
5. Probably no.
6. So far no. But this question will be answered after an investigation, 
which is reserved for later.
7. A detailed report on the encountered issues, at least in the specific 
case of IBM WebSphere ILOG JRules, should be provided at the end of this 
POC.
