The Service-to-Service topology view exposes the application invocation transaction and execution path by topology diagram view. This article explains what is the Service-to-Service topology and how to read the Service-to-Service topology. The Service-to-Service topology view is very clear and simple for small systems with few apllications, processes and simple service invocation styles. However, the topology diagram would become very complex if there are many applications in WDPE and the invocations are complex. This article also described some best practices and methodologies to filter and reorganize the Service-to-Service topology to be more understandable.
