I am going to maintain my SDLC using JIRA. For this I am treating the project components as the the SDLC Phases (Requirement, Design, Devlopemnet ect.). For the ganuler level task types like prototyping or storyboarding or coding I have created issueTypes like prototyping, storyboarding and coding. To map the project type(e.g J2ee or ERP) I am sing the Project Category attribute of JIRA. Please advise if this approach makes sense.
I have to agree with Harry. The workflows in Jira are representations of PROCESS. As such, you want your issues to represent things to be worked on, they move through a process/workflow, changing status as they do. Your status should be things like "defining requirements", "in design", "under development".
Your issue types are more reasonable, they represent tasks that need doing although it may be a little difficult because you may have one "task" that may need to change types.
Your use of project category is spot-on.
Components are, well, components - they're attributes or objects associated with an issue.
