There are two types of Functional Tester processes. The application under Test (AUT) processes are known as Functional Tester server side processes. The recorder, playback, objects inspector, and the IDE (Eclipse or Visual Studio .Net) processes are known as Functional Tester client side processes. A shared memory inter process communication (IPC) layer complements the high-level components of the Functional Tester process model.
