Subject Re: What should be a service?
Date Thu, 02 Jun 2005 09:27:45 GMT
I'm very new to this as well, but shouldn't a service be anything that
has action on your data? What I mean is say you have a user object.
That's your data. Then anything that acts upon that data should be a
service. So login, email, password recovery etc... should all be actions
that act on that data the user object. Then the part that you build is
the logic that routes the users actions to the proper services. In my
mind that's where I draw the line. Each service can use another services
resources, but I wouldn't have one service that controls all the logical
flow of my program. So I guess to summarize, HiveMind is used to
encapsulate actions (aka, services) into manageable modules. Again I'm
sure I'm not completely correct because I'm also new to HiveMind as well.
