Ok, we keep on going; now we support parameter tables for given/when/then, which are parsed as array members.I am now getting very close to full cucumber-like support !!! Oh, I forgot to mention that the "And" keyword is also supported now !!An example of the new syntax:Context    Be.Corebvba.Au
Context    Be.Corebvba.Aubergine.Examples.Website.Contexts.BrowserContext
ContextDLL Be.Corebvba.Aubergine.Examples.DLL

Story Make sure my website gets enough visibility. As a website owner. I want to make sure that I get enough visibility. So that I can get enough traffic

Scenario Search results for 'keywords' on searchengine should contain 'my url'

  • Given the current url is 'search url'
  • When searching for 'keywords'
  • Then the result should contain 'my url'
        | searchengine | search url                     | keywords         | my url          |
        | google       | | BDD .Net         | |
        | bing         |  | core bvba tom    | |
        | bing         |  | Quantum physics  | |
        | faulty link  | http://www.googleaaa           | core bvba tom    | |

    Scenario Search results on google for keywords should contain '' 
        Given the current url is '' 
        When searching for the following keywords
            | keywords  |
            | Aubergine |
            | BDD       |
        Then the result should contain '' and the following markup elements
            | type | inner     |
            | em   | BDD       |
            | em   | Aubergine |

And the context :

public class BrowserContext
    public string Url { get; set; }
    public string Result { get; set; }

    private WebClient wc = new WebClient();

    [DSL("the current url is '(?<url>.*)'")]
    void SetUrl(string url)
        Url = url;

    [DSL("searching for '(?<keywords>.*)'")]
    void SearchForKeyWords(string keywords)
        Result = wc.DownloadString(Url + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(keywords));

    [DSL("searching for the following keywords")]
    void SearchForKeyWords(string[] keywords)
        Result = wc.DownloadString(Url + HttpUtility.UrlEncode(string.Join(" ",keywords)));

    [DSL("the result should contain '(?<myurl>.*)'")]
    bool ResultShouldContain(string myurl)
        return (Result??"").Contains(myurl);

    [DSL("the result should contain '(?<avalue>.+)' and the following markup elements")]
    bool ResultShouldContain(string avalue,string[] type,string[]inner)
        if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(Result) ||type.Length==0)
            return false;
        if (!Result.Contains(avalue)) return false;
        for (var i = 0;i < type.Length ; i++)
            var searchstring = string.Format("<{0}>{1}</{0}>", type[i], inner[i]);
            if (!Result.Contains(searchstring))
                return false;
        return true;

It looks a bit messy, but thats because it is a stupid example. A good example would be loading a repository with some products.

Enjoy !!
