Answer / bindu puvvala

?The Framework is a tiered organization of the function
libraries.?

In other words, our Test Automation Script contains simply
calls to functions instead of individual statements. These
functions are reusable and any Test Script can be
constructed by simply calling these functions.

The code for these Library functions is found in the next
tier(level). The functions themselves might have been
defined in terms of another set of functions, which are
again described in the next tier.

This is called automation framework. It can be 2-tier, 3-
tier,... n-tier.
