Loosely Coupled / Loosely-Coupled Service

Loosely Coupled - A flexible architectural approach to the connection between two or more computer systems that are exchanging data. Loosely Coupled systems are considered useful when either the source or the destination computer systems are subject to frequent changes. This is in contrast to tightly-coupled connections, which are less flexible and more difficult to change.
