Changing the Rule Evaluation Order
When a you have two or more rules of a particular rule type, the rules of that rule type are evaluated in a specific order. Different results can be obtained by changing the order in which the rules are evaluated. You can set the rule evaluation order in My webMethods. Individual task rules are evaluated in the specified order, before global task rules. After all individual task rules are evaluated, global task rules are evaluated in their specified order. The precedence of individual task rules over global rules is fixed and cannot be modified.
