Defines the interface that a channel must implement to be on the receiving side of a request-reply communication between messaging endpoints.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
The contract includes synchronous and asynchronous variants of receive, try-to-receive and wait-for-a-message functionality.
An is not necessarily bound to a single sender. Other channels and channel interfaces provide correlation between the sender and the reply channel, but the base contract makes no such restriction.
The pull model is used with an to receive messages. This model consists of calling ReceiveRequest (or one of its variants) and then waiting for a message to arrive.
