Cucumber is a test automation tool that allows converting business requirements written in natural language into code. Cucumber is used for testing the software functionality without detailed interaction with the internal structure of the system. In our company, we used Cucumber for automation of acceptance testing and support of test-driven development (TDD) and behavior-driven development (BDD) principles.
Technical Aspects of Cucumber
Cucumber supports many programming languages, such as Java, Ruby, Groovy, and others.
Gherkin syntax is used for writing test scenarios in a language that is understandable to everyone. This makes the tests accessible not only to developers, but also to business analysts.
Cucumber integrates well with other popular tools, such as Selenium for testing web applications and JUnit for reports.
Support for CI/CD
Cucumber can be easily integrated into continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) processes, which we have successfully implemented in our projects.
Possibilities and features of using Cucumber
Support for multiple platforms
Cucumber can be used on almost any platform and programming language.
The Gherkin format allows team members with different skills and knowledge to work together.
Reuse of code
Steps in scenarios can be reused, which reduces code duplication.
Testing scenarios are easy to match with the code, which simplifies the debugging process.
Cucumber is used for writing various scenarios, including positive and negative tests, to ensure the quality of software.
Scenarios written in Gherkin serve as excellent living documentation. This simplifies the process of training new team members.
Cucumber is easy to integrate with Jenkins for automatic test runs with each code commit.
Cucumber can be used for testing web applications, mobile applications, and microservices, demonstrating its flexibility and cross-platform capabilities.
Our Experience Using Cucumber
Cucumber enables us to automate test scenarios, thereby ensuring the highest quality of our software.
Creating Live Documentation
Scenarios written in Gherkin serve as excellent live documentation, simplifying the training process for new team members and helping the entire team be on the same page.
The Gherkin format makes it possible for people with different skills and knowledge to collaborate on scenario creation, improving teamwork.
Integration with Other Tools
We integrated Cucumber with Jenkins for automatic test runs with each code commit.
Steps in scenarios can be reused, which helps us reduce code duplication and simplify the debugging process.
Testing on Different Platforms
We used Cucumber for testing web applications, mobile applications, and microservices, demonstrating its flexibility and cross-platform capabilities.
