Ted Neward’s 2006 essay “The Vietnam of Computer Science” famously compares Object/Relational mapping to the Vietnam War: “The United States began a military project with simple yet unclear and conflicting goals, and quickly became enmeshed in a quagmire that … brought down two governments”. The analogy can equally apply to Automated Acceptance Testing: early successes lead to committing to use Cucumber Tests for all stories; more and more resources get spent covering difficult cases and maintaining fragile tests; before you know it your project is bogged down, and you are scrambling for the last helicopter off the embassy roof.
