Java and Testing: Behavior Driven Development and Cucumber-JVM

Java and Testing: Behavior Driven Development and Test Automation with Cucumber-JVM


Cucumber JVM, a rewrite of Cuke4Duke is the tool many Java developers use for writing and running Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) style acceptance tests. The basics of writing and running automated tests with Cucumber-JVM will be introduced and demonstrated. Java developers will see how it can applied to create powerful automated BDD style acceptances in Java.

Behaviour Driven Development (BDD)  is a evolution of Test-Driven Development (TDD) takes the concept to acceptances. Teams serious about rapidly developing quality software are turning to BDD for identifying misunderstanding within requirements before works starts, as well as for test automation to avoid manual testing and regression testing.

    This meetup was absolutely fantastic. The slides were good (could have used a little more polish but were good overall), the presenter clearly knew his material, and he gave us a really great overview of how the product works and how it will work in our development cycles. Truly excellent presentation! I will fully recommend this group to others.
