    Hello!

    I would like to provide a self contained wrapper (licensed as non-viral open source) around the Testing Framework to serve as an adapter for an open source web control library. Since the wrapper library would be hosted in an open sourced repository, I would like for users of the library to be able to use the library without
    a) running into version conflicts with the Testing Framework
    b) not get Exceptions due to missing references because the Testing Framework is not installed.

    I believe these issues could be solved if the Testing Framework where to be available as a nuget Package. Is there a way to accomplish this via nuget or an alternative means?

    Best regards, Michael

    Hi Michael,

    In order to be able to use Telerik Testing Framework, you need to install it from the installer file that you can find here. The installer will also make sure that all of the browsers' extensions that are necessary for test execution are installed. 

    You can share this installation file with the users of the library. That way, you will also make sure that each one of them is using the same release of the Telerik Testing Framework.

    Please let me know whether you have any additional questions.

    Hello Velin!

    Thank you for getting back to me on this. I've seen you already answered the versioning stuff over at http://www.telerik.com/forums/side-by-side-versioning, so I'll just stick to open source:

    In order to enable checkout-and-compile, it would be great to not have to install the Telerik Testing Framework. I do understand that I would not be able to actually execute the web tests, but at least, I would be able to complile the solution. Is it allowed to distribute the installer plus the ArtOfTest.WebAii.dll?

    Best regards, Michael

    No, that will contradict with our End User License Agreement for Telerik Testing Framework Free Edition
