Service Loose Coupling

Service Loose Coupling is one of eight design principles that is part of the service-orientation design paradigm.

The official definition for this principle states the following:

"Service contracts impose low consumer coupling requirements and are themselves decoupled from their surrounding environment."

Common concepts and terms associated with the application of this principle include:

  • logic-to-contract coupling
  • contract-to-logic coupling
  • contract-to-technology coupling
  • contract-to-implementation coupling
  • contract-to-functional coupling
  • consumer-to-implementation coupling
  • consumer-to-contract coupling
  • non-centralized consumer coupling
  • centralized consumer coupling
