  • Course Cucumber Acceptance Testing : Content

    The course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber discusses how Cucumber can be used in combination with the Gherkin scenario language to write the specifications for automated acceptance tests.

    Cucumber Behavior Driven Development

    Cucumber is a Behavior Driven Development tool that allows test scenarios in plain language to be drawn up in consultation with the client and end user. The scenarios are also intended for developers and serve as input for the generation of automated test scripts in a programming language and test framework.

    Gherkin Feature Files

    The course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber focuses on the preparation of Feature files, the syntax of the Gherkin specification language and the creation of a template file for the step definitions. Various Cucumber configuration options are discussed.

    Test Parameters

    Data Driven testing with Cucumber and the parameterization of tests are also on the program of the course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber. Also attention is paid to the implementation of hooks that are performed before, after or during a test step.

    Cucumber Tags

    Finally, Cucumber tags, Cucumber expression language and integration with the JUnit Test Framework are discussed.

    Maven Integration

    The course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber is basically done with Java as a programming language and Maven for bringing in Cucumber and JUnit dependencies, but on request the course can also be done with Ruby and RSpec.

    Audience Course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber

    The course Acceptance Testing with Cucumber is intended for testers, developers and others who want to use Cucumber and Gherkin for the specification of automated tests.

    Prerequisites Acceptance Testing with Cucumber

    Experience with testing is required. Experience with basic programming principles is recommended, but is not strictly necessary.

    Realization Acceptance Testing with Cucumber

    The theory is explained on the basis of presentations and demos. Several scenarios are implemented as exercises. Theory and practice are interchanged. The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.

    Certification Acceptance Testing with Cucumber

    Participants receive an official certificate Acceptance Testing with Cucumber after successful completion of the course.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
