Confusion regarding message interface direction


I am new to XI and have lot of confusion regarding the direction we select in message interface.

For eg. the file is on SQL server and IDOCs to be created in R/3 system.

I created data type and message type of sender i.e. SQL server and trying to create the message interface.

What should be the direction inbound or outbound?

I understand that with respect to SQL server it is outbound and with respect to XI it is inbound.

Is the direction should be given with respect to the application i.e. SQL server or with respect to XI.

Experts please answer..
