Technically, it doesn't.

Jira is an application that runs inside an application server.  For Atlassian applications, this is Tomcat (they no longer support any other application servers).  Tomcat is the software handling the database and network connections, not Jira.

So, as I don't know the internals of Tomcat well enough, I have to say that you should do some research or ask the question of Tomcat experts, rather than Atlassian.

On the third question though, what do you mean by "communicate"?  What are you thinking plugins actually do with each other?

plugin to plugin communication means, that we are pulling some data from one plugin to another through rest api calls. In such kind of situations how is Jira handle slow or unreliable network connections?

also our plugins make rest api calls to an external (AI) server, in such kind of scenario how is Jira handle slow or unreliable network connections?

Again, Jira does not "handle" the network connections.  Tomcat does it.

As for how apps might handle the results (or lack of) from REST calls they make, that's entirely up to the coding of the app.
