How to: Insert a Call in a Web Performance Test to Another Web Performance Test

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