Generic classes

QF-Test abstract recorded class from the framework specific classes in order to get classes of common use. Those classes are called generic classes. This concept provides a better readability and clearer understanding of components. Furthermore already created tests can be re-used once the target technology is switched or if you want to maintain tests in various technologies in parallel.

Beside those generic classes QF-Test records generic types as well. Those types give a more detailed specification of the target component. A typical use-case are password fields. Those fields have the generic class TextField, but they have that specific characteristic to enter passwords, so they get an additional generic type TextField:PasswordField. Using those types makes the recognition of generic classes for certain categories stricter and more appropriate.
