You can develop business rules externally with any IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that generates .NET DLLs. The DLL Extensions form allows you to upload an externally generated DLL file for further use by a Business Rule.
This functionality allows the system to use any pre-built or purchased DLLs. For example, you might need some functionality not part of the system, such as payment management. You can register your own or purchased DLL inside the Solution. And after you register it, you can use the functionality. This allows you to use any additional functionality not part of the system.
