Refactoring Web Services

Hi everyone! I have a web service with multiple methods and I just want to ask if it is better to combine all the methods into one and put a parameter('action') to determine what controller to run.

What do you think is faster, maintainable and easy to extend?

Thank you!

In addition Eldlabs' suggestion, don't forget 12 Factor App while writing web services.

In my opinion, it is better to separate each methods according to its usage. It would be maintainable in the long run.

I would suggest to seperate them from start, it will help you in future as code base starts to grow. Try to think of SOLID Principles (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOLID_(objec...) when coding.
