Marrying Java EE and BDD with Cucumber, Arquillian and Cukespace

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

Having written about the basics of using Cucumber in a Java project in my last blog article, I now would like to demonstrate how to use a similar setup in a Java EE web project with Arquillian and the Cukespace library.

In the following tutorial, we’re going to write a full Java EE web application and add BDD-style tests to the project so that we’re able to test our business layer on the one hand and the user interface on the other hand using Arquillian Drone and Selenium.

BDD Testing with Cucumber, Java and JUnit

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

Whether behaviour-driven-development, specification by example or acceptance test driven development is the goal, the Cucumber framework eases our life when we need to  establish a link between the non-technical, textual description for a new feature and the tests that prove that the application fulfils these requirements.

In the following short tutorial I’d like to demonstrate how to add Cucumber to a Java project and how to write feature descriptions and test-cases for each step of these descriptions. (more…)

Running JavaScript Tests with Maven, Jasmine and PhantomJS

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

Sometimes in a project there is the need to run tests for your client-side code, written in JavaScript from a Maven build.
One reason might be that Maven manages a complex build life-cycle in your project and you need a close integration for your JavaScript tests, another one might be that you’re in an environment where it is complicated to install and manage additional software like an integration- or build-server.

A short Introduction to ScalaTest

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

ScalaTest is an excellent framework to write concise, readable tests for your Scala or Java code with less effort.

In addition it integrates well with a variety of frameworks like JUnit, TestNG, Ant, Maven, sbt, ScalaCheck, JMock, EasyMock, Mockito, ScalaMock, Selenium, Eclipse, NetBeans, and IntelliJ.

In the following short tutorial we’re going to write some tests using ScalaTest exploring features like rich matchers, BDD syntax support or web tests using Selenium/Webdriver.

Oh JBehave, Baby! Behaviour Driven Development using JBehave

Behaviour Driven Development Keyword Map

Behaviour Driven Development is the keyword when we’re talking about test scenarios written in an ubiquitous language, strong interaction with stakeholders, product owners or testers and well described, common understandable test scenarios.

The popular JBehave framework is our tool of choice here and allows us to decouple our test stories from the test classes, offers an integration for web tests using Selenium and finally there’s a helpful Maven plugin for JBehave, too.

After a short excursion into the principles of Behaviour Driven Development we’re going to write and implement test stories for simple acceptance tests and web tests using selenium.

Mocking, Stubbing and Test Spying using the Mockito Framework and PowerMock

Sunday, March 27th, 2011


Today we’re going to take a look at the Mockito framework that not only does sound like my favourite summer cocktail but also offers nice testing, mocking/stubbing, test-spying features and mock injections.

After that we’re going to take a look on how to mock static or final classes by extending Mockito’s capabilities with PowerMock.
