BDD Girls Battle: Cucumber vs. JBehave


 / Track 3  /  RU / Для практикующих инженеров

In this talk two cute Java developers will compete against each other in the style of Mortal Kombat. We will show which of two instruments, Cucumber or JBehave, has more restrictions. We will choose the worst tool. For what?

Many of us have faced the difficulty of choosing a BDD framework. Which library has more features? What complications does it have?

You can learn about frameworks capabilities from documentation or talks in which people praise tools they already chose. But to discover issues and bugs you have to dive through Stack Overflow or personally trial libraries. This talk will help you to avoid a fatal error of choosing the wrong tool to implement autotests.
