This tool in other languages: de-DE


Behaviour Driven Development tool to test web applications. Open Source.

Cucumber lets software development teams describe how software should behave in plain text. The text is written in a business-readable domain-specific language and serves as documentation, automated tests and development-aid - all rolled into one format.

Cucumber works with Ruby, Java, .NET, Flex or web applications written in any language. It has been translated to over 40 spoken languages.

Cucumber also supports more succinct tests in tables - similar to what FIT does. Dig around in the examples and documentation to learn more about Cucumber tables.

Great tool I use cucumber (with ruby) and cucumber-jvm.
I was skeptical about the overhead before I used it. Was the overhead worth it? My answer is yes. I found that I get up to speed on features we are adding to very quickly. I often use cucumber scenarios to set up data for exploratory tests which saves time and lets me be "sapient".
The cautionary tales are:
* The cucumber steps, which are written in normal language, can be misleading in what they are doing. The setup, test trigger, and criteria should match the 'description'.
* Poor automation practices (e.g. intermingling the what & how, not using page objects) can lead to the same disasters that any tool allows.
