DDSteps is a JUnit extension for building data driven test cases. In a nutshell, DDSteps lets you parameterize your test cases, and run them more than once using different data.
Since DDSteps is 100% JUnit compatible, you can run your new data driven test cases just like any old JUnit test case. No IDE plugins or new Ant tasks are required - just add the DDSteps jars to your classpath and you are ready to go!
DDSteps uses external test data (in Excel) which is injected into your test case using standard JavaBeans properties. Your test case is run once for each row of data, so adding new tests is just a matter of adding a row of data in Excel.
DDSteps integrates best-of-breed toolkits for web and database testing, such as JWebUnit, DbUnit and Spring Framework. By making these toolkits data driven, you can do powerful function testing. Automated end-to-end testing of your website is not only possible - it is easy.
* Run a JUnit TestCase method many times, each time with different test data.
* Write tests in Java/JUnit and write data in Excel, using the best tool for each task.
* Handles massive amounts of test data by keeping data separate from code, thus enabling both to be as compact as possible.
* Use standard JavaBean getters/setters to fill your testcase with data. You don't have to write any code to pull in data, all that is handled by the DDSteps framework.
* Tap into the power of property injection which is a complement to dependency injection
found in frameworks like Spring. Property injection does not deal with dependencies, it handles simple data, but lots and lots of it.
