As you click on the "Generate and Run" button, ETS generates a fully autonomous script and runs it.
The “generated script” contains initialization procedures, calls to your test steps, flow control logic and garbage collection actions at the end.

The “generated script” is actually your test case ready for execution as a job by ETS.
By default, ETS saves the “generated script” named MyTestCase.esl in the folder C:\ETS_Workspaces\MyProject\TestCases.
ETS is periodically polling its local job queues for jobs posted for execution.
Three prioritized queues are supported: High, Medium and Low.
