QTP COM API
Does QTP allow you to access it's functionality through an API? I know you can use a QTP dll to run tests and set environment variables but can you actually specify test automation commands externally so that you could write your test script from within visual studio (or preferably Eclipse via a COM bridge like JACOB).
If not possible, then would an approach be to to have an external app/framework write to a file that is then used as a VB script which QTP compiles/interprets/runs?
Any help appreciated.

It is possible but not easy. Test Design Studio from Patterson Consulting is such a tool that does what you want and their editor beats the pants off of the one in QTP.
