Concordion is an open source framework for Java that lets you turn a plain English description of a requirement into an automated test — an active specification
A nice looking tool with the right philosophy. I particularly like in their example the simple method of providing links to manual and automated tests, as well as listing what’s out of scope.
My only criticism is that I think you eventually outgrow wikis. You start wanting to calculate test run results, or asssociate different test data, or something, so a richer client is needed. I haven’t solved that yet.
One thought on “Concordian – Fit style acceptance tests”
A good article where I found out about concordian:
Contrast the activity oriented approach with STIQ, which is very task oriented, and I think loses a lot of the value of fitnesse. Again, probably at least in part to the weakness of the wiki.
