What is a Service?

A service is an application. MEAP has System Services and custom services. Custom services are also called custom applications.

MEAP services may be classified into three types from the standpoint of user interfaces:

  • Applet – displays a user interface on the device console.
  • Servlet – displays a user interface on a remote Web browser.
  • Esplet – has no user interface.

A MEAP application can contain one or more of these three types of service.
