Code: JVA-073
Duration: 16 hours


This training covers the major aspects of Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) with Java. BDD is a methodology for developing IT solutions that directly satisfy business requirements. Its philosophy is to be driven by the business strategy, requirements and goals which it then refines and transforms into an IT solution. TDD helps us build good quality software, BDD helps us build software that’s worth building.

BDD leads to reduced waste and costs, easier and safer changes as well as faster releases. BDD is all about focusing the development effort on discovering and delivering the features that will provide business value, and avoiding those that don’t.

Participants will learn how to write their own applications, applying BDD principles and using JUnit5, Cucumber and JBehave.
