Categorizing Components

Because Business Process Testing is a component-based testing framework, components are largely responsible for driving the system being tested. The framework encourages component design and reuse, so the method you use to categorize your components has a large impact on the ability of your framework to manage your testing abilities successfully.

Note: Flows can be thought of as complex components or small business component tests. Flows comprise a set of components in a fixed sequence to perform a specific task. A flow can be part of a test just like any other component, but when the flow runs, Business Process Testing executes the components that the flow contains.
