The Importance of Behavioral Driven Development (BDD) in Software Development Life Cycle

Behavioral Driven Development or BDD is one of the most resounding or echoing word in the current software industry. Because it got the Power, it is making your business or your software development or software testing easy.

In the traditional Test Driven Development (TDD), gaps has been created between Stake Holder - Developer, Stake Holder - Tester, and Developer - Tester in the Software Development Life Cycle. Because the requirements of the client are not completely understood by developers/testers and at the same Stake holders are not completely able to understand what developers developing and what testers are testing as it is more of technical. So they allow something to happen, reviewing and then correcting. This is where we are doing business wrong time, efforts and money are wasted.

Here comes the BDD, In BDD Stake holders are able to express what they need, Stake holders are able to understand what developers developing, Stake holders are able to understand what the QA team is testing with no or minimal technical knowledge. Because the requirements (written in English)can be converted directly into developing and testing entities.

With this Stake Holders/Developers/Testers got the power to suggest/correct things at early stages in software development cycle because the things more readable and transparent. With this we save time, efforts and money which is making business easy and more profitable.

In BDD the requirements/tests will be written in simple English language (Gherkin). There are many BDD tools that supports this Behavior Driven Development such as Cucumber, SpecFlow, Jbehave, Lettuce, Jasmine and etc.
