Make Your Automation Behave: Extending Your Framework for BDD

June 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDT

STP Community Webinar Header

When done properly, Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) can drastically improve the communication and understanding of requirements. An additional benefit is being able to utilize the domain-specific language of the requirements to drive test automation. However, like any other automation initiative, when done poorly, this too can fail.

In this session, Angie Jones will provide a hands-on technical look into how to:

  • utilize Gherkin-written scenarios for test automation
  • write scenarios in a way that promote maintainability and reusability
  • take advantage of advanced Gherkin functionality such as data tables and objects
  • tie the scenarios to automation code
  • incorporate this approach into existing automation frameworks that use the page object model design pattern
  • share state across multiple steps within a scenario

Upon completion of this session, you’ll have a better understanding of how to:

  • Enhance your BDD initiative with test automation
  • Cleanly extend an automation framework to support executable requirement specifications
  • Support advanced techniques such as data tables and objects within specifications, as well as sharing state through dependency injection.
