5.5 Transaction-flow Testing Techniques

In testing functionality of the system, it is essential to represent behaviour of the system as a set of transactions, representing a control flow graph as a scenario between people and system, and then checking the correctness of the flow of transactions. This aspect provides us insight on the behaviour of the system and also, to verify the functionality of the system. This can be performed as ttransaction-flow testing in order to test the functionality of the system by focussing on its behaviour by following the steps as specified below:

Step 1: Get the transaction flows
