Inviqa to deploy Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) services

Inviqa is using Behat, a tool designed to simplify product development between business analysts and developers and testers.

By Amy-Jo Crowley

Web development specialist Inviqa has started to deliver BDD services.

This is an approach to software engineering that involves stakeholders collaborating on human readable stories to communicate requirements and then accurately test software products.

As part of BDD, Inviqa is using Behat, a tool designed to simplify product development between business analysts and developers and testers.

The tool can be used for API testing, functional testing and data-driven testing. Other features include support for Gherkin and documentation, making it more accessible for new users.

Yair Spitzer, CEO at Inviqa, said: "Behat is free so PHP developers will use it, but if for example large enterprises, want training or consultancy services on BDD we can collaborate with them to help them understand the benefits."

The tool was created three years ago by Konstantin Kudryashov, a former web developer at KnpLabs.

"We came across Konstantin (aka Everzet), who developed this fantastic tool with the help from the PHP community. Behat is completely open source and completely free," explained Spitzer.
