Using Cucumber + Webrat to Test Ruby Apps in the Cloud
Thursday, June 15, 2010 at 11 am PDT
Cucumber, a Ruby on Rails tool, is incredibly useful for the full-stack testing of web applications. Using domain-specific language that reads similarly to plain English, it allows non-technical domain experts to write executable requirement specs. And though it's written in Ruby, Cucumber can be used to test applications in nearly any language, including Python and Java.
In this webinar, Sauce Labs Developer Sean Grove will demonstrate how to quickly set up a Cucumber application from scratch, and then configure it to effortlessly switch between Webrat and Selenium. We'll discuss the advantages of each tool and how to know which tool best fits the situation. Finally, we'll go over how to overcome some of the biggest problems of Cucumber and Selenium by using the Sauce OnDemand platform.
Who should attend: Web developers and QAs with any level of Selenium skills
Current testing environment: Preferably Ruby + Cucumber
