It is possible to connect to a real time application. The three most common methods are to deploy as a Java application (which generates a Java class to invoke the Blaze ADB), as a web service, and also as a Java Bean. In the .NET enviroment the options are as a .NET class similar to Java class or as a Rule Service. Finally, if you are deploying on a mainframe as a COBOL rule service.
In each case, you should follow the manual on creating the deployment instance objects to define the deployment and then do the deployment. As part of the deployment an instructional file will be generated as an HTML file to give final instructions on how to create the ADB file and where you must make changes to the generated code for your specific circumstances.

Once you have installed the Blaze software from the disk or installer it will create a "Blaze" directory on your drive (normally in the C: drive. Under that is an Advisor69 directory (the 69 is the version number in this case an may be different for you). Under that directory is a doc folder and finally a pdf folder (C:\Blaze\Advisor69\doc\pdf). In there is all of the manuals. Look for the DeployingRuleServices.pdf manual. The first 4 chapters will help you out with descriptions fo the deployment instances.
And ADB file is the Blaze equivalent of a .dll file. It is produced by the Blaze precompiler. when the deployment wizard is finished it will produce some classes that you will need to modify and a batch script that will compile the classes and produce an ADB file. Follow the instructions it the generated html files for help at this point.
