JESS is the Java Expert Shell System is based on NASA's CLIPS expert shell system. In simplest terms, an expert shell
system continuously applies a set of if-then statements, called rules, to a set of data, called the fact list. The
benchmark workload solves a set of puzzles commonly used with CLIPS. To increase run time the benchmark problem iteratively
asserts a new set of facts representing the same puzzle but with different literals. The older sets of facts are not
retracted. Thus the inference engine must search through progressively larger rule sets as execution proceeds.
The data size for the execution was 100.
