This presentation shows what it is like working with Behavior Driven Development (BDD) frameworks like JBehave, Cucumber or Concordian. It proposes an effective alternative solution for BDD which is ‘Spock’ – a convenient, lightweight framework, based on the Groovy language.

Gherkin is the language that many Behavior-Driven Development open source software testing tools like Cucumber or Behat use to define test cases. Gherkin is designed to be non-technical and human readable, and collectively describes use cases relating to a software system.
Part of the .NET Foundation, xUnit.net is an open source unit testing tool for the .NET Framework (C#, F#, VB.NET, etc). xUnit.net works with ReSharper, CodeRush, TestDriven.NET and Xamarin.
Testing and validating REST services in Java is harder than in dynamic languages such as Ruby and Groovy. REST Assured is an open source software testing tool that brings the simplicity of using these languages into the Java domain.
Software testing metrics can be very difficult: there are thousands of them out there, it is hard to know which ones are important, many are hard to collect, its often difficult to extract meaning from the metrics, and everyone has an opinion on the usefulness of any metric that you might choose. So, what is one person to do?
The “refactor” step in Test-Driven Development (TDD) is deceptively simple: you just have to improve the code, without changing what it does, right? And the experts make it look so easy: “Look”, they say, “here’s some duplication, which I will remove by “insert magic incantation here”. But how should you decide which “duplication” to remove first? What happens if you fix the “wrong” smell? And how do you even see that duplication in the first place?
With the rapid implementation of Agile development in most IT environments, the traditional roles of functional QA managers are changing. Testing is now the responsibility by the product team; day-to-day testing tasks and accountabilities are largely owned by the product team and defect status is discussed on a quick daily meeting. But yet all of the testing personnel report into the QA Manager from an organizational viewpoint.
