Learn and Master BDD Framework Using Cucumber Selenium.
In order to get better advantage of the software testing, organizations are nowadays taking a step forward. They implement important acceptance test scenarios while development is in-progress. This approach is commonly known as Behaviour Driven Development (BDD).
Behaviour Driven Development gives us an opportunity to create test scripts from both the developer’s and the customer’s perspective as well. So in the beginning, developers, project managers, QAs, user acceptance testers and the product owner (stockholder), all get together and brainstorm about which test scenarios should be passed in order to call this software/application successful. This way they come up with a set of test scenarios. All these test scripts are in simple English language, so it serves the purpose of documentation as well.
BDD aims to make development practices more accessible and intuitive to newcomers and experts alike, but shifting the vocabulary from being test-based to behaviour-based.
It positions itself as a development paradigm, emphasising communication and automation as equal goals.
In BDD, the behaviours represent both the specification and the test cases.
