      Description

      - start the tool
      - open working directory with some results
      - invoke "Report/Create Report". Check several report types (HTML, XML report). Create reports into some directory.
      Target directory will contain structure like this:
      <report>/
        <html>/ - contains HTML-type report files
        <xml>/report.xml - XML report
        index.html - default HTML page that links all other reports (XML, HTML, etc.)
        reportdir.dat - marker file

      - now invoke "Tools/Convert Report". Select source XML file (the one that you've just created). Select several tartegt reports (make same selection as earlier). You may have to use a Test Suite that supplies custom reports - otherwise you'll probably have only one available selection (XML report). Create reports.
      Target directory will be different:
      <report>/
        <html>/ - contains HTML-type report files
        report.xml - XML report

      As you can see - "merged/converted" report.xml file is in the "root" folder. There is no marker file and index.html file.

      This is inconvenient because theoretically user can produce same set of reports from "Converter Tool" as from primary "Create Report" tool.

      This RFE asks to add marker file and index.html file into the reports folder.

      Additionally - it will allow to change default behavior of "Convert Report" when report is done. Now you'll see "Open File" dialog pointing you onto report.xml file. It's actually inconvenient for user to read XML file in JT internal browser. So, instead tool should just automatically open index.html auto-generated page. Just like "Create Report" does.
