    What is the Extension Kit?

    Can anyone give me a good technical description of what the Extension Kit provides? In my scripts I am currently calling some of the functions provided by dlls that are part of the product under test. I have been encouraged to investigate using VB as an automation tool to interact with the COM interfaces that exist in our product. Where does the Extension Kit sit with respect to those two means of interacting with the software?

    Re: What is the Extension Kit?

    The Extension Kit AKA (EK) is a C++ library which Segue provides (200-300K) in size not price! (price I think is about 2.5-3K) you do the math . It allows you to interface your application with any custom objects (or widgets) and write some c++ methods for them so the Agent can get any information that you request and/or control them (SetText (), GetText() Click() etc...)

    The catch is you need to be a C++ developer, or have the help and support of your development team. I've had that in 3 companies so far where the dev team was helpful enough to support the QA effort. Note that this library gets compiled with your application, and you can choose to only build it for test purposes, but you can even ship it or have it in the production builds because the code that the developes add for testing use only gets exposed if the Agent is running on the same machine you run the product on.

    That is the EK in a nutshell
