Cucumber Selenium Tutorial

OVERVIEW

Cucumber is a well-known Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) framework that allows developers to implement end-to-end testing. The combination of Selenium and Cucumber provides a powerful framework that allows you to create functional tests in an easy way.

It allows you to express acceptance criteria in language that business people can read and understand, along with the steps to take to verify that they are met. The Cucumber tests are then run through a browser-like interface that allows you to see what's happening in your test at each step.

This Cucumber Selenium tutorial will walk you through the basics of writing Cucumber tests using Selenium WebDriver. If you are not familiar with Cucumber, this tutorial will also give you an introduction to its domain-specific language (DSL) and guide you through writing your first step definitions, setting up Cucumber with Selenium WebDriver, and automating web applications using Cucumber, Selenium, and TestNG framework.

Why use Cucumber.js for Selenium automation testing?

Cucumber.js is a framework for implementing BDD in Node.js. The major advantage of Cucumber.js is that it allows you to write automated acceptance tests for web applications using simple JavaScript objects, which can then be easily integrated into any Node.js project. With Cucumber.js, you can run your automated acceptance tests on your local machine using the same framework as your staging and production environments, making it easier to understand the flow of requests between each environment.
