NAME

Test::BDD::Cucumber::Extension - Abstract superclass for extensions

VERSION

version 0.67

DESCRIPTION

Provides an abstract superclass for extensions. Loaded extensions will have their hook-implementations triggered at specific points during the BDD script execution.

PROPERTIES

config

A hash, the configuration read from the config file, verbatim. Extensions should look for their own configuration in $self->config->{extensions}->{<extension>}

METHODS

steps_directories()

The returns an arrayref whose values enumerate directories (relative to the directory of the extension) which hold step files to be loaded when the extension is loaded.

pre_execute($app)

Invoked by App::pherkin before executing any features. This callback allows generic extension setup. Reports errors by calling croak(). It is called once per App::pherkin instance.

Note that the TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Feature plugin for prove might instantiate multipte App::pherkin objects, meaning it will create multiple instances of the extensions too. As such, this callback may be called once per instance, but multiple times in a Perl image.

The source handler forks the running Perl instance in order to support the parallel testing -j option. This callback will be called pre-fork.

post_execute()

Invoked by App::pherkin after executing all features. This callback allows generic extension teardown and cleanup. Reports errors by calling croak().

Note: When the TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Feature plugin for prove is used, there are no guarantees at this point that this hook is called only once.

pre_feature($feature, $feature_stash)

Invoked by the Executor before executing the background and feature scenarios and their respective pre-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

post_feature($feature, $feature_stash)

Invoked by the Executor after executing the background and feature scenarios and their respective post-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

pre_scenario($scenario, $feature_stash, $scenario_stash)

Invoked by the Executor before executing the steps in $scenario and their respective pre-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

post_scenario($scenario, $feature_stash, $scenario_stash, $failed)

Invoked by the Executor after executing all the steps in $scenario and their respective post-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

$failure indicates whether any of the steps in the scenario has failed.

pre_step($step, $step_context)

Invoked by the Executor before executing each step in $scenario. Reports errors by calling croak().

$step contains a reference to an array with step data:

  [ qr//, { meta => $data }, $code ]

Feature and scenario stashes can be reached through

  $step_context->stash->{feature}
  # and
  $step_context->stash->{scenario}

Feature, scenario and step (from the feature file) are available as

  $step_context->feature
  $step_context->scenario
  $step_context->step

Note: executed steps, so not called for skipped steps.

post_step($step, $step_context, $failed, $result)

Invoked by the Executor after each executed step in $scenario. Reports errors by calling croak().

$failed indicates that the step has not been completed successfully; this means the step can have failed, be marked as TODO or pending (not implemented).

$result is a Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Result instance which holds the completion status of the step.

Note: executed steps, so not called for skipped steps.
