How can I create *.rul*file for topology in ArcGIS?

share|improve this question

In ArcCatalog, create a topology on a feature dataset in a database. In the New Topology wizard, when you're asked to add or remove rules, you can save the ruleset which will create a .rul file.
On an existing topology, just right click on it in ArcCatalog, go to Properties, select the Rules tab, and you can load or save a .rul file.
