Creating and Editing Tests

You can create tests of most types by using the tools provided by Visual Studio Team System Test Edition. The only common exception is the generic test. Generic tests are based on external programs or tests that were not originally developed for use in the Team System testing tools. By using the Team System testing tools, you can wrap that test or program to produce a generic test, run it, and view its results.
