BDD with CucumberStudio and TestComplete

by Sergey Sammal, Software Engineering Manager

 

This video describes how SmartBear CucumberStudio and TestComplete can be combined together for implementing the BDD approach in your test automation. Including Jenkins into this set will complete your solution with full orchestration. We will show a step-by-step guide using our example project on how to achieve this goal and what benefits you will have using SmartBear tools.

Sergey, 

 

Can't wait to see the new licensing model, and hope it will make updating TC/TE a lot more user-friendly - Thanks for that sneak peek into dev.manage.smartbear.com πŸ˜Ž

 

Timestamp 14:32 you mention test will run in the Jenkins Cloud agent where TestComplete is also located, please elaborate - has TC now got a cloud counterpart?

Good video.  

 

We use TC for keyword tests that will be used to do integrated testing of changes being implemented into our hospital patient care system.  This involves using an Excel spreadsheet as a data source.  How would Cucumber Studio work with a data source?

Hi Lee_M,

 

No, TestComplete is still desktop product. We are running it on Amazon cloud machine and this machine is Agent of our Jenkins server. So for us it similar to "cloud" TestComplete engine. You can learn more about such configuration if you check our TestComplete Plugin for Jenkins.

Hi UConnAnnMarie,

 

I'm not familiar with Data Driven capabilities in CucumberStudio unfortunately. I saw it has Datatable panel for each test, but have not used it yet.

I think you can start with CucumberStudio documentation or contact support. Also I have to say that CucumberStudio has a free trial and you can easily try it out.

Thank you for your quick response!  I will look into this.

Sergey,

 

Project Workspace->Properties panel - is this something from the upcoming TC update or can be obtained in the current version of TC?

Also:

 

CucumberStudio seems to be able to support not only BDD tests and scenarios:

Could you please point to the relevant section of its documentation where this is described?

 AlexKaras,

 

It is very old feature ) And it is very helpful if you have huge projects. I believe it is just hidden by default. You can show it: View\Select Panel... and double click Properties

Please take a look here https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/working-with/integration/hiptest/bind.html

Regarding hidden projects, I think those were demo projects created in CucumberStudio when I was creating my account there. So I cannot say something specific about this situation, I'm working with projects I have created from scratch.
