Working with Generic Tests

You use generic tests to wrap external programs and tests that were not originally developed for use in the Team System testing tools. After you have done this, the generic test is treated by the test engine as any other test type. That is, you can work with generic tests using the Team System testing tools windows. For example, you can run generic tests from the Test View window and the Test List Editor and you can obtain and publish results from generic tests as from other tests.
