BPMN: What is a Message? Part 2

Blog: Method & Style (Bruce Silver)

In my recent post about what is a message, I omitted one important aspect: the addressee. Unlike its close cousin signal, a message definitely has one! But once again, the BPMN spec does not explain what the addressee of a message means. The closest it gets is to say that the target of a message flow may only be an activity, Message event, or participant (black-box pool). But this utterly fails to explain exactly who or what is the intended recipient of the message.
