A business rule is a statement that defines or constrains some aspects of a business. There has been a growing interest in developing techniques to support the extraction of business rules buried in legacy systems. However, little has been done so far to help understand the semantics of extracted business rules. We propose a framework to support the comprehension of business rules extracted from legacy systems. The framework consists of two levels: a representation level and a presentation level. At the representation level, we proposed a language, BRL, to express business rules. We also perform logical inferences over the set of business rules at this level. This helps to recover some properties that may not be explicitly available from the extracted business rules, but are essential to their understanding by users. The presentation level, on the other hand, is concerned with how to convey the semantics of business rules to different users. We believe that the expressiveness and reasoning power of our proposed approach significantly improve previous techniques in helping users to comprehend extracted business rules
