What are the benefits of using Cucumber.js for Selenium automation testing?
Cucumber is a tool based on BDD framework that makes it easy to automate user acceptance tests using the Gherkin language. It provides a human-readable and executable specification within the popular Given, When, Then syntax.
BDD is an approach where the behavior of the feature is defined using simple Domain Specific Language. This allows the Technical writer to easily understand the requirement and subsequently write test scripts in a better manner.
Some of its key benefits include:
- Acts as a bridge between the technical team and the non-technical team.
- Focuses more on the user experience.
- Easy installation and set-up process.
- Focus on the re-usability and improved maintenance of the test code.
