Cucumber framework with Mule ESB

What is Mule ESB ?

Mule ESB is a lightweight Java-based enterprise service bus (ESB) and integration platform that allows developers to connect applications together quickly and easily, enabling them to exchange data. Mule ESB enables easy integration of existing systems, regardless of the different technologies that the applications use, including JMS, Web Services, JDBC, HTTP, and more.

This example shows how we can integrate Cucumber test framework with Mule ESB for integration or acceptance or Behavioral Driven Development(BDD). We simply put a file in a source directory and Mule will read the file from the source directory. Using Mule ESB it’s very easy to read the file from a location. If we had to read the file using manual coding then we had to write many lines of code. But using Mule ESB we just simply put a file in a directory and let the Mule know the file path and Mule does the rest of the thing. You can put any kind of file to the source for reading. The file that we put into a source directory will be an attachment to the intended recipient’s mail address. So finally when we will see the file as an attachment in the mailbox.

Cucumber Test Framework – Cucumber-JVM with Cucumber-Java + Cucumber-Junit

Cucumber is a tool for running automated acceptance tests written in a behavior-driven development (BDD) style. Cucumber is written in the Ruby programming language. Cucumber projects are available for other platforms beyond Ruby. Some use Ruby Cucumber with a bridge into the target language (e.g. cuke4php and cuke4lua). Others use the Gherkin parser but implement everything else in the target language. Cucumber allows the execution of feature documentation written in business-facing text. – Continue reading “Cucumber Test Framework – Cucumber-JVM with Cucumber-Java + Cucumber-Junit”
