NAME ^

Test::BDD::Cucumber::Manual::Architecture - Structural Overview

VERSION ^

version 0.32

INTRODUCTION ^

This short document exists to give you an idea how the different components of this distribution fit together.

MODELS ^

The core of a Cucumber-based test suite are the feature files and the step definitions files. By convention, these are saved under /features/ and /features/step_definitions/ respectively.

The feature files are encapsulated by the classes in Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model.

 TBCM::Step---------------------------+

EXECUTOR ^

We build up a Test::BDD::Executor object, in to which we load the step definitions. We then pass this in a Test::BDD::Model::Feature object, along with a Test::BDD::Model::Harness object, which controls interaction with the outside world.
