       How to use Test::BDD::Cucumber in your test suite


       Test::BDD::Cucumber offers two options to integrate your tests with your test framework:

        1. Integration with C<prove> which will run your .feature
           files as it does .t files
        2. Creation of a .t file which fires off your selected .feature files
           (Test::Builder integration)

       The benefits from using the former approach is that all "prove"'s advanced features like
       parallel testing, randomized order, "--state"ful runs, JUnit output, etc., are available
       out of the box.

prove integration

       With Test::BDD::Cucumber installed in the Perl search path (PERL5LIB) comes the
       possibility to run the .feature files with a "prove" command directly, by specifying

        $ prove -r
                --source Feature
                --feature-option tags=~@wip

       This command registers a "prove" plugin named "Feature" associated with the ".feature"
       extension.  Additionally, it passes a tag filter to exclude @wip tagged features and
       scenarios from being run.

       When executed, the command searches the "t/" directory recursively for files with the
       ".feature" extension.  For each directory holding at least one ".feature" file, the step
       files are loaded from the "step_definitions/" subdirectory.

       The command above will find and run only ".feature" files. When you want to run your
       regular ".t" files as well as Test::BDD::Cucumber's ".feature" files, run the following

        $ prove -r
                --source Perl
                --source Feature
                --feature-option tags=~@wip

Test::Builder integration -- a documented example

       The code below needs to be stored in a ".t" file in the "t/" or "xt/" directory. When done
       that way, the tests are integrated into "make test" as generated from "make test" after
       "perl Makefile.PL".


        use strict;
        use warnings;

        # This will find step definitions and feature files in the directory you point
        # it at below
        use Test::BDD::Cucumber::Loader;

        # This harness prints out nice TAP
        use Test::BDD::Cucumber::Harness::TestBuilder;

        # Load a directory with Cucumber files in it. It will recursively execute any
        # file matching .* as a Step file, and .*\.feature as a feature file.
        # The features are returned in @features, and the executor is created with the
        # step definitions loaded.
        my ( $executor, @features ) = Test::BDD::Cucumber::Loader->load(
               't/cucumber_core_features/' );

        # Create a Harness to execute against. TestBuilder harness prints TAP
        my $harness = Test::BDD::Cucumber::Harness::TestBuilder->new({});

        # For each feature found, execute it, using the Harness to print results
        $executor->execute( $_, $harness ) for @features;

        # Shutdown gracefully
