The focus of software development has shifted from delivering only technical solutions to behavior driven solutions! This means that the focus is on the user who is going to ultimately going to use the solution. Behavior Driven Development is a novel principle that helps in addressing customer needs and enhancing user experience within the development process itself.
Behavior Driven Development (BDD) is a development process that is based on Test Driven Development (TDD). TDD suggests writing the application code once the test case is written. This provides software developers and business analysts with shared processes, shared tools helping them collaborate on software development.
Behavior-driven development starts with the functionality that’s most important to your user. I believe this is one of the most important and difficult task for which you need to wear the user’s hat, rather than the one that developer wears.
1.Enhanced user experience: Business requirements are directly tied with code
2.Effective communication: Communication becomes easier between the business and software development teams
3.Ease of development: Developers know what test cases to write to accommodate TDD
4.Enhanced coverage: Test cases are easier to breakdown, plan and manage
5.Enhanced visibility: Teams can be more agile and there is enhanced visibility into team about the progress of development
