"Business Service"

Hi gurus,

This may be a silly question but I came across this term in a struts2 / spring document I was reading through.

Can anyone shed some light on what the term “Business Service” refers to? How does it compare to business logic, or is there no correlation? Any examples? I’ve tried to google it and come up empty handed…

Thx in advance. :slight_smile:

A business service is a service that performs business logic. You can have some service that updates some records in a database and this would be a “business service”.

You’re in the wrong subforum for this question, this should be in a programming sub-forum :wink:

Well…Okay, let me specify. I’ve been reading through a Struts2 book and near the end it picks up on utilizing the Spring framework as a "container for Struts2, and as such being responsible for providing fully configured business service instances to actions."

I have no idea what this means… :confused:

Ironically this thread originated in a programming subforum but got moved here :smiley:

My bad… I should have been more clear about what I was asking from the start.

A business service might be anything from a plumber to an accountant to a web developer. In other words, a business where a product (such as a plumbing pipe) is secondary to the service. For businesses that sell products, a business service might be toll-free customer service or something like free shipping.

I’m not sure what you’re looking for here, but hopefully this helps.
