BDD with Cucumber

3 Days



More and more organisations are looking to Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) and related practices, as a way to gain or maintain their competitive advantage in software delivery. In this intensive program, participants learn principles and techniques of BDD using Cucumber & Gherkin with Java. Primary focus of program is to allow participants to apply test automation with framework collectively known as BDD test frameworks to adopt test-first method and also, making tests accessible to non-technical users using specification by example. Participants will learn practices to allow writing solid and reliable tests & test code efficiently. Program includes many demonstrations. Participants will have hands-on during program with cucumber, junit and demo for various tests. Test framework concepts are also introduced so that participants can take test automation on another level.

More impotantly, program provides complete understanding of BDD as process and its implementation. All three stages; Discovery, Formulation and Automation are discussed in detail. Open Q&A sessions, demos and hands-on are included throughout the program.


Program is primarily for developers & testers and any Team member that are directly involved with Test Automation using Java.


Participant must have beginner level knowledge of Core Java.
