Testing outbound emails with Cucumber

I’ve become a big fan of Cucumber in a very short amount of time. Mostly, because it’s enabled us to translate user requirements quickly into step by step instructions we can then code to. Especially with the turnover in staff at AI this means that business logic, reasoning and behaviour lives in the app and can be reviewed without a lot of overly hefty documentation and such. Write code to reflect behaviour, test, deploy. Voila, app done !

Dr. Nic still loves Cucumber too. Really like his article on the nitty-grtty details of testing outbound emails using Cuke.
