Why

CslaGenFork makes it really easy to use Business and Authorization Rules imported from a DLL. As far as I know, there is only one library of rules around: CslaContrib.

Jonny Bekkum is the coordinator of CslaContrib project and he has been very busy improving the rules system of Csla. In the beginning of August 2011 there were very important upgrades made on Csla 4.2.x. Read Jonny's post to know all about it.

This sub-project of CslaGenFork intends to release usable libraries of rules. Most of the rules from RuleTutorial are included (except for command rules) as well as some rules from CslaContrib that are absent from this tutorial. All of these rules are copyrighted Marimer LLC and subject to Csla license.

We also added some rules, both Authorization and Business Rules. This later set of rules is copyrighted CslaGenFork project and subject to MIT license.

Each file clearly states the copyright holder. Both Csla license and MIT license are very liberal and allow you to use the rules library in commercial and non-commercial products.

How

In order to use the rules library, CslaGenFork needs to find the respective Csla.dll in the same folder of the rules DLL. The Csla.dll isn't included; compile Csla source code or grab the dll from the respective MSI, that you can download at CSLA .NET downloads
