You use the Test Plan module to build business process tests and flows by combining business components into a testing structure.
- Business process tests are testing scenarios comprised of business components and flows.
- Flows are a type of test that comprise a sequence of business components.
You create business process tests and flows in the Test Plan module test tree. At this stage, you define basic information about the business process test or flow. Afterwards, you select components and flows to add to the business process tests (and, similarly, the components to add to the flows).
When creating business process tests and flows, you can add branches as a control-type element, enabling you to instruct the test script how to proceed when a certain condition is met. Inside each branch, specify different actions for the test script to take, depending on application status during runtime. Each action the script takes is defined inside a branch option.
The Test Plan module can be used to design many types of tests. The information provided in this
sectionis relevant only to Business Process Testing. For details on using the Test Plan module with other test types, see the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide : How to Create Tests.
BPT Packaged Apps Kit provides additional, automated features that enable you to test packaged apps. Therefore, some procedures described in this
sectionmay not be part of the recommended best practice when using Business Process Testing to test your packaged app.
All standard functionality in the Test Plan module applies to Business Process Testing as well. For details on using the Test Plan module, see the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide
: Test Plan Module Window.
