Contracts define the name of a specific business task and list the message types used in that task. Service Broker contracts define two different service roles: the initiator and the target. The initiator of a conversation begins the conversation by sending a message to the target. The contract that the conversation uses defines which service role can send messages of a given message type.



Contract Editor allows you to define contract properties. It opens automatically when you create a new contract and is available on editing an existing one.


To open a contract in Contract Editor, double-click it in the DB Explorer tree.
