MessageHandler as one whole and information required to bind with the underlying process.
MessageReader - captures functionality necessary to filter out unwanted messages and decode the data according to provided meta-data
MessageWriter - captures functionality necessary to address the message (provide globally unique identifier) and encode the data using provided meta-data
Association - provides:
one to one association between an entity instance derived from
required addressing information as the
meta-data information used to encode/decode the process data into the messages
