The agile approach to software development is gaining momentum. Behavior-driven development is a popular agile methodology that evolved from test-driven development. It also suggests writing tests before coding but in this case, tests are more focused on users and the app’s behavior.
Behave takes into account all nuances of BDD and provides an opportunity to exceсute software testing in the best possible way.
Test automation with Behave
Behave is a well-known and widely used Python test framework designed to cover the needs of BDD. It is rather similar to Cucumber.
Behave also enables writing test scenarios in plain easily readable language according to the ‘Given-When-Then’ formula. Due to such simplicity, even non-technical team members like BAs, PMs, and stakeholders can get involved. Then, the steps of the test scenarios are realized through test code written in the Python language. Once defined steps can be reused in other use cases.
On test execution, a test result is provided. In case of failure, the code of the application under test needs to be refactored until the corresponding test passes.
