How to: Insert a Call to Another Web Test

You can insert a call to another Web test into an existing Web test. You can do this to extend a Web test that already contains individual Web page requests. You can also do this to create a new Web test that is composed entirely of calls to Web test components. For example, you could create a test for a shopping application by using log in, browse, buy, and log out Web test components. For more information, see Walkthrough: Creating a Web Test that Requires a Login and Logout.
