Title
(DE) REGELBASIERTE INHALTSANFRAGEHANDHABUNG
(EN) RULE-BASED CONTENT REQUEST HANDLING
(FR) GESTION DE DEMANDE DE CONTENU BASÉE SUR DES RÈGLES
Abstract
(EN)
An embodiment of a method includes receiving a content request including a first set of attribute values, using at least one of the attribute values from the first set of attribute values to determine a second set of attribute values, traversing a hierarchy of decision nodes, wherein each decision node implements business logic based on one of the attribute values from the first set of attribute values or the second set of attribute values, and generating a decision from a last node in the hierarchy, wherein the decision dictates how to respond to the content request.

(FR)
L'invention concerne, selon un mode de réalisation, un procédé consistant à recevoir une demande de contenu comprenant un premier ensemble de valeurs d'attribut, à utiliser au moins une des valeurs d'attribut parmi le premier ensemble de valeurs d'attribut pour déterminer un second ensemble de valeurs d'attribut, à traverser une hiérarchie de nœuds de décision, chaque nœud de décision implémentant une logique commerciale sur la base d'une des valeurs d'attribut provenant du premier ensemble de valeurs d'attribut ou du second ensemble de valeurs d'attribut, et à générer une décision à partir d'un dernier nœud dans la hiérarchie, la décision prescrivant la façon de répondre à la demande de contenu.
