Q

What is a service?

What is a service?
Services are core business logic that are protocol-independent, location-agnostic and contain no user state. Services are coarse-grained, meaning the service can perform its logic and return the result in a single call. Services do not contain presentation logic, so they may be reused across diverse applications.
