Running from the Command Line Interface (CLI)

To run the test from the cli call:

groovy -cp target/test-classes ./bin/cucumber-jvm.groovy --glue src/test/resources --glue cucumber/runtime/groovy src/test/resources/cucumber/runtime/groovy/a_feature.feature


groovy -cp target/test-classes ./bin/cucumber-jvm.groovy --glue src/test/resources --glue cucumber.runtime.groovy src/test/resources/cucumber/runtime/groovy/a_feature.

The test uses a mix of compiled and interpreted step definitions which makes the command a bit tricky:

  1. -cp target/test-classes tells groovy where to find the compiled class files
  2. --glue src/test/resources is required so that cucumber finds the interpreted step definitions
  3. --glue cucumber/runtime/groovy or --glue cucumber.runtime.groovy is required so that cucumber finds the compiled step definitions
  4. the last parameter provides a feature or a path with features

This demonstrates that the files in the bin directory (cucumber-jvm.groovy, cucumber-groovy.jar and cucumber-core.jar are a completely standalone execution environment.

TODO: Figure out the best way to package and publish this as a "groovy package". Maybe just a zip file?
