Anand Bagmar - Behavior Driven Testing (BDT) in Agile

2,742

Published on

I delivered this talk in SiliconIndia's SoftTec 2012 on 14th July 2012. I introduce Behavior Driven Testing (BDT) with a couple of examples, the different ways of writing the tests in Imperative and Declarative style, the value proposition of BDT, and how BDT can help you build a very good safety net using Test Automation suite.

  • I find putting data in tables make the tests less readable. However, there is always a context to why and what you should do in the tests. One rule does not apply to all contexts.

    In ideal cases, there would be no parameters required at all. The framework should be able to 'use' the correct data based on the specification. However, in some cases you need a little - but very relevant data - this is where using parameters as strings would help. In rare cases, you would need to use a data table to specify the data.

    I definitely do NOT think this is an anti-pattern - infact its applying the knowledge and experience in building a good declarative test - which helps validate the product under test in the best possible fashion.

    Hope this helps. Happy to discuss more :)

  • @abagmar You are using String variables in step definitions with And And style of declaration the steps. Do you think it's a good practice to write tests in that way? I'm suggesting to use Gherkin tables instead and transform them into List of entities into the code that is much easier to maintain into programming.

    BDT scenarions how you are presenting is looks like BDD anti-patterns that was written in Cucumber and Specification by Example books.
