Foundational Service Patterns

Foundational Service Patterns represent the following set of patterns from the SOA Design Patterns catalog:

Functional Decomposition (Erl)

How can a large business problem be solved without having to build a standalone body of solution logic?

Service Encapsulation (Erl)

How can solution logic be made available as a resource of the enterprise?

Agnostic Context (Erl)

How can multipurpose service logic be positioned as an effective enterprise resource?

Non-Agnostic Context (Erl)

How can single-purpose service logic be positioned as an effective enterprise resource?

Agnostic Capability (Erl)

How can multipurpose service logic be made effectively consumable and composable?

These patterns were first printed in the SOA Design Patterns book and summarized versions of the patterns are published at the SOA Patterns community patterns site.
