Sample Web Add-in Extensibility projects.
These projects contain completed toolkit support sets, which were developed to provide support for some public Web 2.0 toolkits.
The samples are installed in the %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Documents\ExtAccTool\Samples folder, and are also accessible from the Extensibility Accelerator Start Page. You can open these projects and browse through the files, functions, and comments to learn more about how these support sets are designed. You can also modify these sample projects and experiment with them. Backup copies of the sample projects are installed in the <Extensibility Accelerator installation folder>\Help\Samples folder.
The following prerequisites must be installed before you can install the Extensibility Accelerator for Functional Testing:
.NET Framework 4.5
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Run-time Components
Visual Studio 2008 Shell (isolated mode) with SP1 Redistributable Package
The Extensibility Accelerator for Functional Testing installation includes the installation programs for these prerequisites, and runs them before installing Extensibility Accelerator, if relevant.
The installation files are available on the Apps Marketplace. Download the .exe file, and run it to install the Extensibility Accelerator.
UFT does not have to be installed on the computer in order to install and use Extensibility Accelerator to create toolkit support sets for your Web controls.
Installing the Extensibility Accelerator on a UFT computer enables you to automatically deploy your toolkit support set to UFT, making it simpler to complete the debugging and testing of your toolkit support set.
