Article Integrating SpiraTest and RemoteLaunch with Cucumber

by Adam S on Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Cucumber is a software tool that computer programmers use for testing other software. It runs automated acceptance tests written in a behavior-driven development (BDD) style. Cucumber is written in the Ruby programming language. This articles explains how you can use SpiraTest and RemoteLaunch to integrate with Cucumber.

Integrating with RemoteLaunch

RemoteLaunch comes with the command-line plugin, this allows RemoteLaunch to execute your cucumber test that may be written in Ruby, C#, Java, or any other language and then parse the output results and send them back to SpiraTest where all of the test results can be collected.

Integrating with Ruby, etc.

In addition or instead of using the RemoteLaunch approach, you can use the various language plugins for SpiraTest. These plugins can integrate either with the appropriate xUnit implementation for that language (e.g. Test::Unit for Ruby) or simply at the language level, having the Cucumber test simply call the SpiraTest test runner proxy and send back the results.

This approach gives more granular and customized reporting that the standard RemoteLaunch option.
