Just been experimenting with Cucumber JVM, with a view to adding some new BDD tests into a project I’m working on. And so the obvious next step was to see if there are an integrations with Eclipse, my preferred IDE.

Turns out there are, helpfully summarised by some kind soul in this public spreadsheet. I tried out all the plugins listed there; for my money Roberto Lo Giacco‘s plugin is the current winner. There’s a handy page of screenshots, for example:

What’s also interesting is that this plugin is implemented in XText. In Apache Isis we havethought about implementing a DSL encoding Isis’ programming conventions, and XText looks like a good candidate.

I’m scheduled to present (on Isis, of course) at the inaugural Medit-Symposium conference in Sicily in October, and one of the other sessions there is on XText. Given at what Roberto has made XText do for Cucumber, I’m looking forward to learning more there!

From Idea to Application gives you the architecture to quickly build, manage and run a range of applications (web, mobile, big data, new smart devices, etc.) on an open-standard, cloud-based platform. See why developers are using IBM Bluemix. Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
