Response Messages

Response messages are messages that a receiving application sends in response to a message. A sending application requests a response by providing a response queue with the message its initial message. The receiving application then checks to see if a response queue was sent, sending a response message back to the response queue if one was provided.

This response is an application message that must be in a form understood by the application requesting the response and the application sending the response. Response messages are application-defined and are not defined by Message Queuing.
