Using Task Flow Templates
Task flow templates provide the ability to capture common task flows and behavior for reuse across many different bounded task flows. Two reuse mechanisms are provided: by copy and by reference. Exception handling is an area where developers may make use of task flow templates.
Task flow templates define reusable skeletons for task flow definitions to extend and, therefore, cannot be run on their own. To run a task flow template within JDeveloper, you must create a task flow definition that extends it and run that task flow instead.
You create a task flow template from the New Gallery by selecting Web Tier > JSF > ADF Task Flow Template.
