Yes. If we accept Don Box's definition, I find myself puzzled about service autonomy over shared resources if any. If a service can't share a resource, it's a method with private data (even if the data is in a database and not an object). So all I'm left with is the granularity difference and is that really a difference? It seems to be a terminology designed to sell the implementation framework and hide the details: that is, like ecosystem diatribes, it's metaphorical. len From: Karl Waclawek [mailto:karl@w...] > I can see that as philosophy, but practically, it > doesn't make a difference other than performance. > In work we are doing, we are using web services > for things such as report methods.

I guess, to some, these differences are not only practical but also fundamental.
