Which architecture does a JIRA-Plugin consist of?

Hi all,

I'm writing on my bachelor thesis and I'm wondering how the architecture of a JIRA Plugin looks like.

Does a JIRA Plugin correspond to a two-tier architecture when I'm using active objects as a plugin component, that is (I assume) included in the Container of Tomcat Application Server?

Tomcat Server handles data-mangement and business-layer stuff (JiraWebActionSupport) and client (browser) is responsible for presentation. Is this right? Which architecture does this constellation corresponds to?
