LEXI Promo BR Web Scripting Bridge
Chris Shields

Chris taught himself to program computers the old fashioned way, by reading manuals, perseverance, and sweat. Chris's understanding of programming and enginuity are a source of revitalization in the way we do things here at Sage AX.

In four years working for ADS, Chris worked continually to expand his skill set: BR programming and debugging, Customer Service, EDI, Network Administration, Web Hosting, .NET Nuke, SQL Server, and IT. Chris is our resident EDI expert, and his specialties include BR and Web Server hosting, but it is his commitment to continual self improvement that makes him perhaps one of the most valued members of our team.

Chris recently concieved, designed, and completed the BR Web Scripting Bridge, finally linking the Business Rules! programmer with the web based world.

The FileIO library is a powerful BR library designed to aid the BR programmer in Read and Write access in a revolutionary way that brings much of the convenience of SQL to the BR Programmer. If FileIO is used properly, your File Layouts become the source for your BR Form Statements and your read/write access. Using FileIO also gives the BR Programmer access to a whole host of powerful development tools.


The ScreenIO library is a powerful library that builds on FileIO. ScreenIO is the fastest way we know of to develop business software.

A ScreenIO license is now included in the purchase of your BR license, in all copies of BR 4.32c and higher. Contact Gordon Dye of Business Rules Corp at gordon.dye@brulescorp.com , or (248) 619-0400 to update your BR license to the latest version.

For information, contact Gabriel Bakker of Sage AX at gabriel.bakker@gmail.com .


Entering line numbers is a constant distraction to the flow of creative thought. Programmers shouldn't have to concern ourselves with counting line numbers when we have computers to count for us. Allow LEXI to handle these cumbersome details for you. Enjoy better focus and greater productivity today.
