The Cucumber Book showed you how your team can work together to write executable specifications—documents that tell a clear story and also happen to be working test code. We’ll arm you with ready-rolled solutions to real-world problems: your tests will run faster, read more clearly, and work in any environment.
Our first tips will help you fit Cucumber into your workflow. Powerful filters will tame tables full of test data, transforming them into the format your application needs. Custom output formatters will generate reports for any occasion. Continuous Integration servers will run your Cucumber tests every time the code changes. Next, you’ll find recipes tailored to the platform you’re running on. Ever wanted to know how to test a Grails app from Cucumber? Need to put a Windows program through its paces? How about a mobile app running on Android or iOS? We’ll show you how to do all of these.
Throughout the book, you’ll see how to make Cucumber sing as you interoperate with different platforms, languages, and environments. From embedded circuits to Python and PHP web apps, Cucumber has something for you.
What you need:
You’ll need basic working knowledge of Cucumber and Ruby. Individual recipes may have additional requirements; for example, a recipe on Windows automation might pull in an open source GUI driver.
We’ve written the recipes for compatibility with Ruby 1.9.3 and 1.8.7, plus Cucumber 1.1.4. Other versions may work as well, but these are the ones we test with.
