Karate is a new test framework based on the well-known Cucumber library. It allows you to quickly write meaningful tests for web services using a domain-based language (DSL). Here is an example to help you get started with Karate.
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) aims to bring together the actors involved in software projects, from the stakeholders to developers, and to document functional requirements in simple and understandable standardized language.
These texts are not only meant to make sure everyone has a common understanding or to serve documentation purposes. They can also be used to test and verify whether the defined software criteria have been met with the help of modern tools.
A form that issues an error message after completing is an annoyance for the user and doesn’t generate any requests. Or: An interactive feature suddenly no longer functions after maintenance work on the code. These and similar scenarios are well-known to web developers. Therefore, it is indispensable for solid high-quality web applications, to run an acceptance test on a regular basis and make use of systematic bug tracking.
