Both ontology and a rule engine can be used in RESTful service composition. When is ontology better and when is rule engine better ? what is the criteria for selecting an ontology or rule engine ?

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
