Some applications defer functionality to other existing applications. A common example of this is the payment gateway. Many application owners don't wish to incur the cost and hassle of maintaining their own application payment gateway, so they leverage existing payment gateway providers to handle payments for their applications.

Test Objectives

The objectives of this test case are:

  • to clarify the scope of the test, and
  • to understand the state/circumstances of normal termination of the application, and
  • to observe what parameters and information is exchanged during the application handover.
