I put together a diagram describing the inter-process communication in AWA v12.2, based on the Server Processes documentation page.

  • With the exception of message queues, only work processes communicate with the UC4 DB.
  • The primary work process maintains a connection with every other WP.
  • Each work process maintains a connection with every communications process.
  • Each connection from the AWI, or Java API-based app, or agent is established with a single communications process.
  • The java communications process handles REST API requests and a subset of AWI functions such as advanced object search.

Let me know if you see any errors or omissions.
