Agnostic Context (Erl)

How can multipurpose service logic be positioned as an effective enterprise resource?

Problem

Multi-purpose logic grouped together with single purpose logic results in programs with little or no reuse potential that introduce waste and redundancy into an enterprise.

Solution

Isolate logic that is not specific to one purpose into separate services with distinct agnostic contexts.

Application

Agnostic service contexts are defined by carrying out service oriented analysis and service modeling processes.

Impacts

This pattern positions reusable solution logic at an enterprise level, potentially bringing with it increased design complexity and enterprise governance issues.

Agnostic Context: The application of this pattern results in a subset of the solution logic being further decomposed and then distributed into services with specific agnostic contexts.
