General J2EE: Difference between Application and Service

  1. Difference between Application and Service (2 messages)

    Hi all,
           I may be posting to the wrong forum, my apologies for that. My question is

    "What is the basic difference between an application and a service or based on what you can distinguish an application and a service"

    Thanks in advance...

  2. Hello
    Many people gets confused between the terms.
    In simple words if an application is developed which can serve other applcations it becomes service.
    In the sense say if u own a hotel and u r having app which displays rate and availability of rooms on selected date.Since its limit is within ur work area its an application.
    But if u designed the same in such a way that it can be used by a tourist company to design an app. which will use that info and service their clients ur app becomes service.
