work process

Component of an AS ABAP AS Instance. Work processes execute applications programmed in ABAP. There are various types of work processes for different applications: dialog, enqueue, background, spool, and update work processes. During the entire runtime of an AS Instance, each work process is logged on to the standard database of AS ABAP as a database user using a standard connection. In dialog processing, a work process is assigned to an ABAP program for the duration of a dialog step.
