This article describes a new approach for the modeling of an enterprise application. This approach supposes a clear division of the application into three components: web front-end, business process and database. The article will particularly describe the development and testing of the business process. This new technique assures a perfect combination between the automated and the human tasks. The order placed by a client will be processed by the business process and as a result the raw materials used, the processing mode, the working timetable for the treatment, the galvanization will be determined. Finally the client will receive a notification including the acceptance/refusal of the order and the calculated delivery date for an accepted order. This approach comes with great advantages: greater flexibility for the application, automated monitoring of all the activities and greater reusability of the code. As a result the company is able to react much faster to market changes and the costs of the changes will be minimum.
