Loosely coupled: loosely defined, loosely understood

"Loosely coupled" is a heavily used term in SOA land. To me, loosely coupling means the use of a standardized contract/interface (aka canonical message format) and preferably also asynchronous messaging such as JMS.

Found an interesting presentation that describes the "facets" of loosely coupling. And it compares the different types of web services with relation to "decoupling".
