I would appreciate if someone could help me to understand the difference between:
library - program - Service and Handler and when use one instead of another; is it possible to make a comparison with the world RPGILE (Programs, modules, Service program )
Thanks in advance.
I have tried to some documents but the difference is not clear

Re: Help to better understand Logic Parts2013-02-11T20:56:11Z in response to SystemAdminHi,
- An EGL Library part can have many entry points (functions). It can be used from programs, services, JSF handlers as wel as from ruihandlers. It resembles an RPG Service Program.
- An EGL Service part is similar to a library but it is called over HTTP by an other application. So it doesn't have a direct RPG counterpart. The RPG always needs to be wrapped by Java or an other language that can expose itself as a webservice.
- An EGL JSF Handler part handles input of a JSF page, more or less like an RPG program handling the input on a Display File. It is generated into Java.
