Hi Mamta,

If the problem is that you want the oddball test case to share a lot of 
the same machinery as the other cases in the class, this might work:

1) Create a subclass of InListMultiProbeTest. The subclass could just be 
a nested class inside InLisMultiProbeTest. Let's call the subclass S.

2) Move the oddball test case into the subclass and add a suite() method 
to S which decorates the case in the special way you need.

3) Then _Suite.suite() can do the following:


Hope this helps,
