Extra Contexts for Behat

This additional contexts could be used as your feature suite's submodules, giving you extra steps and hooks right out of the box.

How to use them

To use those contexts, you should simply instantiate them with needed arguments (see constructor arguments) and pass them into useContext() function like that:

<?php

namespace Acme\DemoBundle\Features\Context;

use Behat\Behat\Context\BehatContext;
use Behat\CommonContexts\SymfonyMailerContext;
use Behat\CommonContexts\DoctrineFixturesContext;

/**
 * Feature context.
 */
class FeatureContext extends BehatContext
{
    public function __construct()
    {
        // To use SymfonyMailerContext in your steps
        $this->useContext('symfony_extra', new SymfonyMailerContext());

        // To use DoctrineFixturesContext in your steps
        $this->useContext('doctrine_fixtures_context', new DoctrineFixturesContext());
    }

    /**
     * Example of using DoctrineFixturesContext in BeforeScenario hook
     *
     * @BeforeScenario
     */
    public function beforeScen()
    {
        $loader = new Loader();

        $this->getMainContext()
            ->getSubcontext('doctrine_fixtures_context')
            ->loadFixtureClasses($loader, array(
                'Acme\Bundle\DefaultBundle\DataFixtures\ORM\LoadNewsData',
                'Acme\Bundle\DefaultBundle\DataFixtures\ORM\LoadPagesData',
                'Acme\Bundle\DefaultBundle\DataFixtures\ORM\LoadReviewData',
                'Acme\Bundle\DefaultBundle\DataFixtures\ORM\LoadTicketData',
            ));

        /** @var $em \Doctrine\ORM\EntityManager */
        $em = $this->kernel->getContainer()->get('doctrine.orm.entity_manager');

        $purger = new ORMPurger();
        $executor = new ORMExecutor($em, $purger);
        $executor->purge();
        $executor->execute($loader->getFixtures(), true);
    }
}

Example: Using SymfonyDoctrineContext to reset Doctrine

database schema in Symfony framework before scenario starts

<?php

namespace Acme\DemoBundle\Features\Context;

use Behat\Behat\Context\BehatContext;
use Behat\CommonContexts\SymfonyDoctrineContext;

/**
 * Feature context.
 */
class FeatureContext extends BehatContext
{
    public function __construct()
    {
        // Connects SymfonyDoctrineContext
        $this->useContext('symfony_doctrine_context',  new SymfonyDoctrineContext);
    }

    /**
     * Clean database before scenario starts
     *
     * @BeforeScenario
     */
    public function beforeScenario($event)
    {
        // Asks subcontext SymfonyDoctrineContext to rebuild database schema
        $this
            ->getMainContext()
            ->getSubcontext('symfony_doctrine_context')
            ->buildSchema($event);
    }
}
