In this tutorial, we will create some tests in Cucumber for Java.
The test (specification) is initially created in Jira as a Cucumber Test and afterwards, it is exported using the UI or the REST API.
- Install Java
- Add the dependency of cucumber-jvm (i.e. cucumber-java) to your maven "pom.xml" file
- Clone of the Github repository "cucumber-java-skeleton"
We will use the code from the Github repository "cucumber-java-skeleton", with slight changes in order to make the dummy Test pass.
The first step is to create a Cucumber Test, of Cucumber Type "Scenario", in Jira. The specification would be exactly the same as the one provided in the original repository.
After creating the Test in Jira and associating it with requirements, etc., you can export the specification of the test to a Cucumber .feature file via the REST API or the Export to Cucumber UI action from within the Test Execution issue.
The created file will be similar to the original, but will contain the references to the Test issue key and the covered requirement issue key.
You can change the implementation of the steps in order to make them pass quickly.
After running the tests and generating the Cucumber JSON report (e.g., data.json), it can be imported to Xray via the REST API or the Import Execution Results action within the Test Execution.
The execution screen details will provide information on the test run result.
The Cucumber Scenarios Example/Result details (i.e., Hooks, Backgrounds and Steps) are only available for executions done in Xray v2.2.0 and above.
The icon represents the evidences ("embeddings") for each Hook, Background and Steps, but is only available for executions done in Xray v2.3.0 and above.
Please see Testing in BDD with Gherkin based frameworks (e.g. Cucumber) for an overview on how to use Cucumber Tests with Xray.
