Reusable Components and its benefits

Reusable components are pivotal in enterprise application development, offering scalability, manageability, and flexibility. It is designed for reusability, capable of being utilized across various test cases. This is particularly useful when using the same steps again across test cases.  

For instance, in a shopping e-commerce site, you can create four reusable components: one for logging in, another for product search, a third for purchasing, and the last for logging out. These components can be utilized individually across various test cases. 


Reusing existing components enables developers to save time and effort by eliminating duplication and streamlining maintenance tasks. 

Key challenges in enterprise applications and how reusable components address them 

Fast-paced development and evolving challenges over time 

Reusable components greatly expedite development by offering pre-built, tested, and validated functionality. By encapsulating common functionalities into reusable components, teams can allocate more resources to implementing domain-specific logic and tackling unique business requirements. 


Shared Experience and Collaboration  

Reusable components enable both customization and standardization, ensuring flexibility while preserving a shared user experience. 

Consistency and Standardization 

Reusable components ensure a consistent and uniform user interface design across the application, promoting a seamless user experience. 


Authentication and Security 

These components streamline user authentication tasks like login, session management, and access control, reducing development time and enhancing security. 


Best Practices for Reusable Components  


Keeping Components Simple Simplify component implementation by using coding practices that make code clear and easy to understand for other developers. 


Standardize Naming Convention – Ensure to standardize component names for clarity and consistency across projects and teams, reducing confusion and accurately reflecting their purpose and function. 

Keeping components simple  

Complex and opaque components hinder reusability and increase the likelihood of errors and technical debt. Keeping them simple helps facilitate easier maintenance and promotes reusability.
