Very much so. A message is always the interface between two processes, that
of the message creator and the message receiver. When I say
Order>>Response>>Despatch etc then the >> identifies the point at which a
message needs to be sent between two or more processes. I would argue
against trying to create models that try to indicate both sides, though this
is probably what is required to describe a "business process" such as "to
buy" or "to sell", which covers both of the processes that the message
interfaces with.
