service-oriented solution logic

Any body of solution logic to which service-orientation has been applied to a meaningful extent is considered "service-oriented." A service represents the most fundamental unit of service-oriented solution logic.

There has been a common misperception that the use of Web services technology within an application constitutes a service-oriented solution. It is through service-orientation design principles that solution logic is shaped so that it supports the realization of the strategic goals and benefits associated with SOA and service-oriented computing.
