Is the ABAP dispatcher a workprocess??

Ultra simple question.

I was reading the SAPTEC guide and the definition was a little ambigious.

To put the question anotherway, to be considered a workprocess, does a process need to have a database interface?

Hi,

A workprocess is an os process which accomplishes some useful work.

A useful work may be :

execute an abap dialog step from a transaction for a user : dialog workprocess

execute an abap dialog step from a batch job : batch work process

execute an abap dialog step from an asyncronous update : UPD or UP2 workprocess

execute an abap dialog step from creating a spool entry : spool workprocess

execute an abap dialog step from an enqueue query : enqueue workprocess

The dispatcher process manages a queue and dispatches the various queries to the different workprocess available to run the required type of task.

This is a technical usage and so not a work in SAP speak.

For your specific question, I think tht you are right.

Regards,

Olivier
