QA & Testing – REST API Testing Using Cucumber

We test REST API with the Behaviour-Driven Cucumber Approach.


Behaviour-driven Development (BDD) being increasingly popular in recent times is aimed at testing the behavior of the entire application instead of just the individual units. Cucumber- a framework highly used for testing REST APIs is compatible with BDD (Behaviour-Driven Development). The approach is used to write acceptance tests for the applications while allowing the automation of functional validation in an easily readable and understandable format for Developers & Testers. Being considered the favorite & easy tool for projects, Cucumber supports Java as well as many other languages like Perl, PHP, native JUnit, Python, and .Net, etc. The software can also be used along with a suite of automation test tools like Selenium, Watir, Capybara, etc.

In this era of technology, applications depend highly on well-tested, well-designed, developed, and well-documented APIs. We, at QSS Technosoft, offer full-cycle testing and quality assurance services using Cucumber for web and mobile applications. Our custom dedicated QA teams have been offering independent quality engineering and a wide range of software testing services and solutions for the next-generation enterprises and ISVs across the globe.

Let’s Start With Cucumber for End-to-End Testing

Cucumber is based on three main components:

  • It has 3 different scenarios, each including a combination of steps: Given, When, and Then. Cucumber explains the behavior of the application in a simple English text using Gherkin language.
  • Step definition is the second component of Cucumber. It is a Java file that implements in code the steps described in the feature.
  • The third component is the test class which is a JUnit (or TestNG) that works by binding the two former components.
