Test automation and software craftsmanship

Benjamin Bischoff, Senior Automation Engineer at Ubisoft Düsseldorf (ex trivago N.V.)

I am featured in the first edition of the freshly started Cucumber Community Newsletter!

The online version can be read online here.

At trivago, we use a Cucumber based framework for end-to-end tests of our most important web applications. Cucumber stores test result as JSON files which can be turned into human-readable test reports.

Up until now we used the widespread cucumber-reporting Maven plugin.

At trivago, we are using an in-house developed Selenium framework based on cucumber-jvm to run automated browser tests. As the test suite increased (the time exceeded 45 minutes for a full run), we were looking for ways to move away from sequential towards parallel execution.
