Evaluating Decision - Simple Usage

ZENEngine parses JDM from JSON content. It is up to you to obtain the JSON content, e.g. from file system, database or service call.

use serde_json::json;
use zen_engine::DecisionEngine;
use zen_engine::model::DecisionContent;

async fn evaluate() {
let decision_content: DecisionContent = serde_json::from_str(include_str!("jdm_graph.json")).unwrap();
let engine = DecisionEngine::default();
let decision = engine.create_decision(decision_content.into());

let result = decision.evaluate(&json!({ "input": 12 })).await;
