      JESS by Sandia National Laboratories
      Developed by an employee of Sandia National Laboratories, JESS is a Java version of NASA's CLIPS that has added a few more of the capabilities and performance characteristics of contemporary, commercial rule engines. Its syntax remains roughly CLIPS compatible but has added some of the extensions first introduced in Eclipse by The Haley Enterprise. JESS is not public domain or open-source like CLIPS but can be download at no charge for academic use. Therefore, it is also popular for college-level courses on rule-based programming, where the obvious choice for the textbook would be Jess in Action: Rule-Based Systems in Java.
