when looking at SCA, of course I see some benefits compared to common
component models. SCA is platform and language neutral. It supports a
lot of bindings etc.

But what is the difference between a component / service in SCA and for
example EJBs or COM etc.? Is a component in SCA a service or more a
component? Since it is not public it seems to be a component. Or could
it be called private service? This results in the central question: What
in SCA is the difference between a component and a service? In SOA,
typically a service is a functionality that is public, coarse grained,
business aligned, autonomous etc. In SCA the service seems to be the
access to a distributed component that does not have to be coarse
grained, public etc.

So, SCA seems to be a more comfortable way to build component based
applications. Only, it is called service now.

Maybe you can help me to understand the benefit here.

Best regards
