Can Ciscoworks LMS 3.2 interact with a switch/router simulator (boson netsim, gns3, etc)

I would like to practice with Ciscoworks but on a virtualized network (router/switch simulator).  Can this happen and if so what simulator would you recommend?  gns3 seems to only be a router simulator and I'm mainly looking for a switching simulator for 3550 and 6500.

Since there were older posts about gns3, I assume it's ok to talk about third-party Cisco simulators. In that case: I hear it's possible to get most Cisco switching commands in gns3 with certain images, such as the c3725-adxxxxxxxxx9-mz.124xx-1x.Tx.bin, by adding the NM-16ESW module to your imaginary router.

I don't see why LMS wouldn't be able to work with simulated devices.
