binding directory is a list of stuff to be bound with an ILE program as it is created, Included in the list could be service programs.
Service program is a special type of ILE program with one or more callable modules (you can think of these as procedures or functions if you like) that can be called by any program that it is bound to.
Another difference is that a program that points to a binding directory then contains all the needed modules within the object after compile. A service program contains the modules within itself and is then invoked at the time of execution.
