Here you can see that there are two main components:
The DocWay UI is a collection of Web Parts installed on a SharePoint Server .
The DocWay Server comprises two components that are always installed together even though they function independently.
- The DocWay Web Service provides Search, Content Management, and Workflow services.
- The DocWay Content Transfer Service (DocWay Transfer Service) provides transfer of content between the user’s desktop and individual Documentum Docbases
So, basically, what happens is:
- A user logs into their SharePoint site that contains Web Parts supplied by the DocWay UI.
- These Web Parts display meta-data gathered by the DocWay Server about content stored in the Documentum Docbases.
- Should the user transfer content between their local storage and a Docbase, the transfer is made by the DocWay Transfer Service, bypassing SharePoint entirely.
