Specification-By-Example

Specification-By-Example is a concept that helps business, developers and testers to collaboratively discover and describe domain details and building a shared understanding. It is a useful requirements analysis and engineering technique, that can be used for just-in-time refinement of user stories with acceptance criteria in agile projects. Specification-By-Example is often combined with tools like Cucumber or SpecFlow, that allow automatic validation of implemented user stories and provide a living documentation about the system. Driving development with business readable examples is often referred to as “acceptance test driven development” (ATTD), which extends the outside-in approach of TDD.

SpecFlow and other tools for automated validation

SpecFlow is an open source BDD tool initiated by TechTalk, that allows automated validation of Gherkin based specificiations on .NET. SpecLog integrates with SpecFlow and other source code artifact based BDD tools. More information on Gherkin based automation tools can be found at:
