Agile software development teams are seeking better ways to create business-facing automated tests that support the development of the right product. Cucumber is rapidly becoming the most popular tool for accomplishing this objective – but, until now, no book has covered Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) practices and tools in sufficient depth. Teams have been forced to keep reinventing the wheel, or else to hire one of a handful of consultants at great expense. Behavior-Driven Development with Cucumber fills that gap.

¿

Richard Lawrence and Paul Rayner begin by illuminating ATDD’s value, and showing how it can help you produce better software with less pain. Next, they present a complete BDD/Cucumber reference and tutorial that provides a common language for software customers and team members alike. Lawrence and Rayner thoroughly explain the role of each team member and stakeholder, with a particularly insightful emphasis on non-developers. Next, they show how to automate functional tests for web, console, native client, legacy, and other applications on the Ruby, Java, and .NET. platforms. To complement the Web’s existing Ruby-oriented Cucumber resources, the authors provide even more Java (Cuke4Duke) and C# (Cuke4Nuke) examples.

¿

Throughout, you’ll find concrete examples and hands-on exercises based on the authors’ extensive experience teaching BDD to software professionals and helping software organizations successfully implement BDD strategies.
