Testing Business Components
You may often find it useful to analyze and debug ADF BC without having to run the Fusion Web application from within JDeveloper. You can use the ADF Business Component Browser tool to complement your debugging process. This tester enables you to view, insert, and update the contents of business objects, add view criteria, set named bind variables, and execute service methods.
Using the Business Component Browser, you can simulate an end user interacting with your application module data model before you start to build any custom user interface (UI). Even after you construct your UI pages, you can use the Business Component Browser to assist in diagnosing problems. You can attempt to reproduce the issues in the Business Component Browser to discover if the issue lies in the view or controller layers of the application, or is instead a problem in the business service layer application module itself.
