Comment on DMN 1.2: Haters Gonna Hate by Bruce Silver

Blog: BPMS Watch - Bruce Silver

Jacob’s specific complaint is identical to the use case that spawned generalized unary tests, and the one example of it in DMN Cookbook. It’s testing whether a list input expression contains any member of a list input entry. Honestly this use case could (should) have been handled simply by defining that as the meaning of a list input entry when input expression is a list. The spec says that list input entry is shortcut for FEEL input expression in input entry, so a note explaining the in operator in that case would have sufficed. Using generalized unary test to condemn DMN as a whole is just self serving nonsense from a proprietary tool vendor.
