Ng instead I used this book as my introduction to BDD automated acceptance testing Cucumber Serenity and data driven executable specifications Being new to all these things this book was a great help It is detailed and peppered with useful practical tips Since I already had an idea of which
at the level It seems to imply that the tester should be able to write the executable specification and the base automation although this does not match my experience of most testers in the fieldSection three of the book covers the coding aspects of BDD including the automation of tests at the UI level as well as the unit testing level It goes into a fair amount of detail on how different tools work in different languages as well as a fairly comprehensive overview of TDD The final section of the book introduces living documentation mainly using tools like Thucyidides as well as how BDD fits into the continuous delivery worldThe book is full of diagrams as well as comprehensive code examples that are well explained and relevant One of the main advantages of this book is that is not aimed at any tool in fact it covers a number of tools and languages in a reasonable amount of detail The other standout books on the subject have either covered the process in great detail Specfication By Example or a tool in detail The Cucumber Book This does a very reasonable job of bothThis adva. Very good and the main topic to read with book details.dsl at the
Free read BDD in ActionThis book gives a great overview of the importance of conversations when practicing BDD and several useful reuirement gathering techniues such as using examplesThe book also gives a great overview into good automated testing and CI practices which I maybe didn t
but was nice surprise It dives into the technical capabilities of automation toolsWould recommend this to anyone wanting to get started with BDD but also those who want a technical introduction to any of the BDD automation tools such as Cucumber or Behave Bit repetitive Excellent source of information to start improving your softwareexpect but was
Development ProcessAs A Software EngineerprocessAs a software engineer uite some experience in continuous integration and test driven development the technical process I wanted to read this book to see how software uality can can be improved by improving the way software is developed the human side of the software development process I enjoyed reading BDD in Action it gives me lots of ideas to try to improve my daily software development processI liked the first part of the book it gives a lot of background information This is very informative and is very useful to share with anyone active in your software development team It is a sum of lot of great books best practices and ideas which eventually lead to the BDD approach The book refers nicely to these sources that resulted in BDD The way the book is written made me make a note a few times remember to read a few of those references I did not now of but sound very interestingThe second part of the book shows real life examples This is very useful I m a Java developer and I like the fact that examples are shown with tools I can start using directly There are also examples in other languages this was not a problem for me The balance is fine there are examples for anyone The approach of the second part of the book is also nice every step of the development process is addressed in the examples from starting with the design defining the behavior to including automated tests reports and the generation of documentation in the processSome things I encountered during reading The information in the book is very dense and it took me way longer than expected to read the book Small issue the examples do not display very well on an ereader Kindle Paperwhite this could have been improved There is an e reader version available now which I did not test Examples are consistent but not always There is a big example that is reused over and over and goes into depth and depth to address certain situations you will encounter in real life I really like this approach but sometimes another example is mixed with the big example Sometimes the book asks you to perform some exercises I personally do not like this approach I just read what to do including relevant information and examples I do not want to perform an exercise which no one will validate Sometimes the information is repeated again after the exercise It feels a bit unprofessional I personally would prefer a separate test or traini. Best PDF, BDD in Action By John Ferguson Smart This is. Ntage is also its disadvantage I would hope testers and business analysts would read this book but may be discouraged by the amoutn of code examples which start from very early in the book On the flipside there is a good coverage of reuirements tools at the beginning of the book that may discourage some developers I hope that in this world of cross functional teams that this is not the caseOverall this is a very well written book that covers the full spectrum of BDD

given a free eBook of BDD in Action for my reviewBefore readinga free eBook of BDD in Action for my reviewBefore reading title I was uite unaware about BDD conceptsThis book represents a great introduction to Behavior Driven Development It allows a better understanding of BDD principles and how to apply them to real scenarios Moreover it faces most of difficulties communication problems and misunderstandings that can take place during software development processIt is important the emphasis given to the concepts of automation and continuous integration in each step of programming since it is vital to have tested reproducible and reliable softwareWhat I could get from this book is that BDD is not easy to be introduced in developing tea.
