NAME

       Test::BDD::Cucumber::Executor - Run through Feature and Harness objects

VERSION

       version 0.60

DESCRIPTION

       The Executor runs through Features, matching up the Step Lines with Step Definitions, and
       reporting on progress through the passed-in harness.

ATTRIBUTES

   matching
       The value of this attribute should be one of "first" (default), "relaxed" and "strict".

       By default ("first"), the first matching step is executed immediately, terminating the
       search for (further) matching steps. When "matching" is set to anything other than
       "first", all steps are checked for matches. When set to "relaxed", a warning will be
       generated on multiple matches. When set to "strict", an exception will be thrown.

METHODS

   extensions
   add_extensions
       The attributes "extensions" is an arrayref of Test::BDD::Cucumber::Extension extensions.
       Extensions have their hook-functions called by the Executor at specific points in the BDD
       feature execution.

       "<add_extensions" adds items in FIFO using unshift()>, and are called in reverse order at
       the end hook; this means that if you:

         add_extensions( 1 );
         add_extensions( 2, 3 );

       The "pre_*" will be called in order 2, 3, 1, and "post_*" will be called in 1, 3, 2.

   steps
   add_steps
       The attributes "steps" is a hashref of arrayrefs, storing steps by their Verb.
       "add_steps()" takes step definitions of the item list form:

        (
         [ Given => qr//, sub {} ],
        ),

       Or, when metadata is specified with the step, of the form:

        (
         [ Given => qr//, { meta => $data }, sub {} ]
        ),

       (where the hashref stores step metadata) and populates "steps" with them.

   execute
       Execute accepts a feature object, a harness object, and an optional
       Test::BDD::Cucumber::TagSpec object and for each scenario in the feature which meets the
       tag requirements (or all of them, if you haven't specified one), runs "execute_scenario".

   execute_outline
       Accepts a hashref of options and executes each scenario definition in the scenario
       outline, or, lacking an outline, executes the single defined scenario.

       Options:

       " feature " - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Feature object

       " feature_stash " - A hashref that should live the lifetime of
        feature execution

       " harness " - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Harness subclass object

       " outline " - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Scenario object

       " background " - An optional Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Scenario object representing the
       Background

   execute_scenario
       Accepts a hashref of options, and executes each step in a scenario. Options:

       "feature" - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Feature object

       "feature_stash" - A hashref that should live the lifetime of feature execution

       "harness" - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Harness subclass object

       "scenario" - A Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Scenario object

       "background_obj" - An optional Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Scenario object representing
       the Background

       "scenario_stash" - A hashref that lives the lifetime of the scenario execution

       For each step, a Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepContext object is created, and passed to
       "dispatch()". Nothing is returned - everything is played back through the Harness
       interface.

   add_placeholders
       Accepts a text string and a hashref, and replaces " <placeholders" > with the values in
       the hashref, returning a string.

   add_table_placeholders
       Accepts a hash with parsed table data and a hashref, and replaces " <placeholders" > with
       the values in the hashref, returning a copy of the parsed table hashref.

   find_and_dispatch
       Accepts a Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepContext object, and searches through the steps that
       have been added to the executor object, executing against the first matching one (unless
       "$self-"matching> indicates otherwise).

       You can also pass in a boolean 'short-circuit' flag if the Scenario's remaining steps
       should be skipped, and a boolean flag to denote if it's a redispatched step.

   dispatch
       Accepts a Test::BDD::Cucumber::StepContext object, and a Test::BDD::Cucumber::Step object
       and executes it.

       You can also pass in a boolean 'short-circuit' flag if the Scenario's remaining steps
       should be skipped.

   skip_step
       Accepts a step-context, a result-type, and a textual reason, exercises the Harness's step
       start and step_done methods, and returns a skipped-test result.
