Encapsulation: The “Paper Tissue” Analogy

It’s some time since I was more involved in SOA principles. I can remember a lot of conflicts of their understanding by different people. Clearly, one of the key principles in SOA (should you have some IT history already, feel free to go back to OOP) is “Encapsulation”, when only recently this nice analogy came to my mind:


Lack of encapsulation is like leaving a paper tissue in your laundry.

I bet you can figure out yourself what’s gonna happen without too much explanation, right?
