A message represents the content of a communication between two participants. In BPMN 2.0, a message is a graphical object (it was a supporting element in BPMN 1.2).
In a collaboration, the communication itself is represented by a message flow (see the section “message flow” for more details). The message can be displayed as attached (associated) to a message flow in a collaboration.
