Learn how Cucumber BDD (Behavioral Driven Development/Test Driven Development) testing frameworks work. Learn how the pieces of Cucumber fall together and how frameworks are put together, as well as best practices of BDD. We will use the most popular and actively maintained Cucumber framework for Python BDD called 'Behave'. We will use PowerPoint presentation to convey the concepts on each topic and then write example code testing real scenarios with Selenium WebDriver as well as API testing.
We will build an E-commerce site on our local machine and practice writing real test cases both for front end with Selenium WebDriver and for the backend with Python, with full access to MySQL database of our site.
Critical addition to your resume
If you are getting into the QA world or you are looking to advance your career, having BDD testing skill will accelerate your success. Python is one of the most popular languages to use in software testing, and knowing how to use it with BDD style testing will expand your pool of possibilities.
In addition to using Python for BDD testing you will also get tips and guidance on best practices.
After completion of this course you will be able to go through interview as if you have BDD testing experience. You will also have a ready to go framework that you can continue to add test cases for practice and for your portfolio.
Content and Overview
In this course we will be using PowerPoint presentation to explain the concepts and then go to code in an IDE (PyCharm) for each topic. Some topics, we will go directly to code and start writing and executing.
We will install necessary packages for our framework. We will discuss the directory structure needed for our design, and then we will write and run test cases.
We will run how the BDD tests are written, how the work together and how to understand and control the output.
We will create an efficiently structured test framework and learn how to use Pythons logging module to produce readable reports.
What am I going to get from this course?
49 + lectures of BDD core concepts, examples and practice exercises (continuously adding more examples)
Plenty of test cases to use in your portfolio and to build bigger test suits on top of the course material
Enough material and examples to be able to create a project (BDD test framework) and maintain a GitHub repo
Specific features of the most popular BDD framework for Python called Behave
Practice using Selenium WebDriver functions with Python
Practice testing of Front-end with Selenium WebDriver BDD and Python
Practice testing of Back-end with Python
- Anyone looking to learn automation testing and has a bit of background in Python and Selenium WebDriver
- Anyone that already know basic automated testing and want to know how to apply BDD
- Anyone coming from Java or other background and can pickup Python easily
In this video I will go over the sections of the course and give a quick overview of each.
In this lecture we will get introduced to Feature files. Feature files are one of the major components of BDD style. We will discuss what Feature files look like, what they contain and what they are used for.
In this lecture we will get introduced to Steps directory and step definitions. Step directory and step definition files are the second critical components of BDD style. We will discuss what the steps directory is, why we need it, and how it is related to Feature files
This section is a discussion of how data can be shared between steps. It is important that data generated in one step should be available in the next step. Example, if user is created in first step then the login step should have access to the user information.
This lecture covers on how to create our custom config file and why. Config file is used to make maintenance of code a lot easier. Information used in several places can be stored as a config and modifying information will be done only at one location.
