Francesco Tassi:
Switching From TDD to BDD With Behat and Symfony2
August 16, 2013 @ 13:27:32

In this new post to his site Francesco Tassi shares his experience making the switch from doing just test-driven development on his Symfony2-based applications to behavior-driven development using Behat, Mink and PHPSpec.

Recently I started a small extra project with a smart fellow from my local PHP User Group, since the project was quite simple and both of us were willing to learn something new, we decided to give BDD a try. In the PHP world BDD means Behat, Mink and PHPSpec. [...] In this post I won't cover all the details about BDD, Behat or PHPSpec, I'd rather describe how I switched from PHPUnit and TDD to BDD (and also show some bits of code).

He talks about the switch in mindset that comes along with adopting BDD and how you think about testing - not what it does, but what it should do. He talks some about test organization, configuration and his process for executing them. There's a bit about working with databases (with fixtures and @BeforeScenario) including the code for the feature file to make it happen.
