IDuplexChannel Interface

Defines the interface that a channel must implement to both send and receive messages.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel.Channels
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public interface class IDuplexChannel : IInputChannel, 
	IOutputChannel, IChannel, ICommunicationObject

The IDuplexChannel interface is the union of the IInputChannel and IOutputChannel interfaces. The IDuplexChannel interface does not mandate any correlation between the IInputChannel and IOutputChannel when implemented. This means, in particular, that the contract does not mandate that the sender of messages that are received through the IInputChannel is equal to the recipient of messages sent through the IOutputChannel.
