“ Services have been around forever. Client-server programming was invented as a way for applications to take advantage of networks of computers. This idea was lost on early web architectures that stuffed everything into two or three tier architectures. A browser talked to a web server that invoked code that would return a web page. That code might talk to a database, but it was always a monolithic self-contained blob. As web sites needed to scale, programmers rediscovered client-server programming and started breaking down monolithic applications into cooperating collections of services. Services started talking to other services and soon web servers weren’t application servers anymore, but just a thin layer around a set of service calls. The dependence of rich UIs and mobile applications on backend services has simply continued this evolution. „
