Testing with Gherkin and Selenium using Cucumber

+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    This course is a hands-on introduction to writing tests and business specifications that feed into an automated test framework. Students will learn how to specify high-level behavior using Gherkin’s Domain-Specific Language (DSL) in order to test software. While the students will get some exposure to the underlying Python language, the class will focus on use of the Gherkin DSL. Students will also get a chance to see how these feature test specifications can be run through Cucumber and fed into reporting software. This course will emphasize Test-Driven Development as the means to inform which tests should be written. Since many applications are built for the web, students will also get a chance to automate such web-based tests with the Selenium automation system, once again tying those tests back into the Cucumber suite. Overall, students will see how high-level business requirements can be translated into simple unit, feature, or integration tests.
