Message type list
This area contains the list of message types to be included as part of the contract.
Specifies which endpoint can send a message of the indicated message type. Contracts document the messages that services can use to have specific conversations. Each conversation has two endpoints: the initiator endpoint, the service that started the conversation, and the target endpoint, the service that the initiator is contacting.
Indicates that only the initiator of the conversation can send messages of the specified message type. A service that starts a conversation is referred to as the initiator of the conversation.
Indicates that only the target of the conversation can send messages of the specified message type. A service that accepts a conversation that was started by another service is referred to as the target of the conversation.
Indicates that messages of this type can be sent by both the initiator and the target.
