Sub flow in Mule 4 | Flow Reference in Mule 4

Subflow is a scope that enables you to group event processors in a manner similar to that of a flow, but with certain differences and limitations:

1) Subflows do not have event sources.

2) Subflows do not have an error handling scope.

3) During design, sub-flow works as macros that replace the Flow Reference components that call them. When you build the application, all Flow Reference components that call a sub-flow are replaced by the contents of the referenced sub-flow.

4) Referencing sub-flows results in better performance than referencing a flow.

We can connect main flow with sub-flow in mule 4 via flow reference component.
