Automating Tests with Cucumber (CUCUMBER)

Built-in quality allows quicker delivery of business value. One of the key practices in realizing built-in quality is Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) / Behavior Driven Development (BDD). The triad (customer, tester, and developer) creates acceptance tests to provide a joint understanding of the requirements. Gherkin syntax using a Given-When-Then format is a common way of expressing these acceptance tests.

About this Course

Built-in quality allows quicker delivery of business value. One of the key practices in realizing built-in quality is Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) / Behavior Driven Development (BDD). The triad (customer, tester, and developer) creates acceptance tests to provide a joint understanding of the requirements. Gherkin syntax using a Given-When-Then format is a common way of expressing these acceptance tests.    

Automating the tests expressed in Gherkin using Cucumber gives rapid verification that the system is delivering business value. Through examples and exercises, this course shows the developer how to write the code necessary to connect tests with Cucumber to Java production code. It demonstrates ways to reduce test redundancy with scenario outlines and tables. It presents examples on setting up test doubles (mocks) to speed up testing.
