Composition Member

A composition member is a service that participates in a service composition by being composed by another service.

Much of the Service Composability design principle (and much of service-orientation in general) emphasizes the need for services to be designed as effective composition members, regardless of whether they need to be initially positioned within a composition. This is fundamental to the long-term goal of establishing a service inventory from which agnostic services can be repeatedly repurposed into multiple service compositions capable of fulfilling new and changing business requirements.
