Diving into Behat
April 09, 2013 @ 09:50:34

Giorgio Sironi has a new post to today about some of his experiences with Behat, a behavior-driven development testing tool written in PHP. It uses the Gherkin language syntax to define its tests.

I had the occasion to try out and adopt Behat for a particular need in our projects at Onebip. Here is my recount of the experience from a PHPUnit contributor and invested person.

He starts off with a list of situations where he doesn't think that Behat is a good fit for testing including testing of a single object and acceptance tests where comparing the response from more than one test is needed. He suggests that it's more useful for verifying high level business rules than anything. He talks some about the shift they made to using Behat and some of the benefits they found in its use. He finishes up the post by looking at the technical side and includes a warning about letting the size of the FeatureContext file get too large.
