Migrating to Spreewald

This describes how to migrate an existing cucumber test suite to Spreewald.

  1. Add the gem

  2. Include spreewald into your cucumber environment by putting
    require 'spreewald/web_steps'
    require 'spreewald/email_steps'
    # ...
    or just
    require 'spreewald/all_steps'
    into your support/env.rb.

  3. Look through your step definitions for everything that might be included in Spreewald. Candidates are web_steps, shared_steps, table_steps, email_steps etc. Comment it out.

  4. Run your test suite. It will probably complain about missing steps, those that didn't make it into Spreewald. Comment those in again.

  5. Remove everything that's still commented out.

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
