Subject Re: Creating task/macro wrappers
Date Sat, 23 Feb 2019 23:16:26 GMT
You could write a script, e.g. in JavaScript. There, you would create a 
new instance of the testng task (using the global 'project' object), 
then set all the necessary attributes and nested elements of the task 
(don't forget to set the owning target), and, finally, call its 
'execute' method.
