Service granularity in SOA-projects : a trade-off analysis

Steghuis, Claudia (2006) Service granularity in SOA-projects : a trade-off analysis.

Abstract:Service granularity, the scope of functionality that is exposed by a service, is a crucial issue in designing service oriented architectures (SOA). Every SOA needs to have well designed services in order to gain the predicted benefits, like flexible business processes and low development costs. However, while many literature sources suggest architects to choose the right level of granularity of services, none of these studies goes into detail about how to do this. In this master thesis we explore service granularity in SOA projects to develop patterns to support service granularity decision-making. Although experience seems to be the only good resource to improve service granularity decision-making, this research examines the service granularity issues to provide help to the inexperienced architect
