Firstly, what is Cucumber?
Cucumber is a testing framework that helps to bridge the gap between software developers and business managers.
Tests are written in plain language based on the behavior-driven development (BDD) style of Given, When, Then, which any layperson can understand.
It describes a cycle of interactions with well-defined outputs, resulting in the delivery of working, tested software that matters.
But... why it can be used to fill the gaps between technical and business teams??
Cucumber lets software development teams describe how software should behave in plain text (business-readable).
It serves as documentation, automated tests and development-aid - all rolled into one format.
It has been translated to over 40 spoken languages.
It can be used within another tools, to support and improve testing process.
Given, When, Then
This syntax is designed to be intuitive.
provides context for the test scenario about to be executed
specifies the set of actions that triggers the test
specifies the expected result of the test
Stimulates conversations between stakeholders and IT Team.
The developer and stakeholder collaborate to write automated tests.
These conversations help to find gaps and misunderstandings beforehand.
Cucumber might just seem like a testing tool, but at its heart it's really a collaboration tool.
This is Cucumber's big secret: the tests and documentation are just a happy side effect; the real value lies in the knowledge you discover during those conversations.
