What you'll learn
At the heart of any successful software delivery, is a team who knows what the business wants and have a solid shared understanding of the features they need to build. In this course, Java 1: BDD with Cucumber and Gherkin Getting Started, you will learn how to use behavior-driven development (BDD) to define clear, unambiguous requirements, and to turn these requirements into automated acceptance tests. First, you will delve deep into the BDD requirements discovery process, and how it helps teams deliver higher quality features sooner. Next, you will discover how to define requirements and acceptance criteria using Gherkin, the language of Cucumber. Finally, you will explore how these requirements can be turned into automated acceptance tests using Cucumber and Java, and how these tests not only verify your application’s behavior but also document what each feature does. When you are finished with this course, you will have a better understanding of how BDD can help your team collaborate more effectively, and also understand how Cucumber and Gherkin can be used to write executable specifications which both test your application and document your features.
