What is the difference between DataSubscriber and DataPublisher? and how they relate?

I have already read the document  "openPDC Data Access Options" ( And I have reviewed the DataSubscriberTest and DataPublisherTest also. There is more information (documentation) about it?

You can think of the DataSubscriber as a client "API" you can use to get real-time (or historical streaming) data from the openPDC. It is also an InputAdapter that can be fixed to get data from other openPDC's.

The DataPublisher is a server component, an ActionAdapter, used to open a socket to listen to multiple DataSubscribers that are requesting data.

Hope that clarifies that a little.
