Describing the Test Object Model

The first stage of developing support for custom controls is to introduce the test object model that you want UFT to use to test your applications and controls. The test object model is a list of the test object classes that represent custom controls in your environment and the syntax of the test object methods that support the custom controls.

You define the test object model in a test object configuration file according to a specific XML schema. For details about how to create test object configuration files, see Creating Test Object Configuration Files.
