Behat, Mink and Selenium

Hello guys !

I will explain a simple tutorial of “How can you use BDD with Selenium and PHP.”

– First thing you have to install Behat:

– Install Composer

– Create a composer.json file in your root directory

{
“require”: {
“behat/behat”: “2.4.*@stable”,
“behat/mink”: “1.5.*@stable”,
“behat/mink-goutte-driver”: “*”,
“behat/mink-extension”: “*”,
“behat/mink-selenium2-driver”: “*”
}
}

 

– Run composer install

– Create a behat.yml file

default:
paths:
features: features
bootstrap: %behat.paths.features%/bootstrap
extensions:
Behat\MinkExtension\Extension:
goutte: ~
selenium2: ~

 

– Initialize your Behat project with vendor/bin/behat –init. Note: bin directories are configurable in composer.json. If your composer file has a bin directory, use that path instead of vendor/bin.

– Create a feature file, e.g. test.feature

Feature: Drupal.org search
In order to find modules on Drupal.org
As a Drupal user
I need to be able to use Drupal.org search
@javascript
Scenario: Searching for “behat”
Given I go to “http://drupal.org
When I search for “behat
Then I should see “Behat Drupal Extension

 

– Edit FeatureContext.php to extend from MinkContext. Note: You will need to add the use statement, use Behat\MinkExtension\Context\MinkContext. Run vendor/bin/behat

– Second Step: Adding Selenium as an optional driver

– Download Selenium Server

– Run java -jar /path/to/selenium-server-standalone-2.37.0.jar

– Add selenium2: ~ to your behat.yml

– Add a @javascript tag above your scenario

– Run vendor/bin/behat

– Third Step: Adding new step definitions

– Add the step you want to create in your scenario, e.g.

– When I search for “behat” Run vendor/bin/behat

– Copy the step definition template to FeatureContext.php and replace the PendingException with your code.

/**
* @When /^I search for “([^”]*)”$/
*/
public function iSearchFor($arg1)
{
$this->fillField(‘Search Drupal.org’, $arg1);
$this->pressButton(‘Search’);
}
