Build Status

This is an example project for doing web automation testing with Gauge. This project tests some of the functionalities of the active admin demo app. This app is hosted as a Java WAR (with embedded Jetty).

Running this example

The tests are run on Chrome by default.


This example requires the following softwares to run.

  • Java 1.7 or above
    • Note that Gauge works with Java 1.6 and above. But this particular example uses Java 1.7
  • Gauge
  • Gauge Java plugin
    • can be installed using gauge install java
  • Chrome

Setting up the System Under Test (SUT)

java -jar activeadmin-demo.war

Setting up Maven

Run specs

If you already have Maven installed, you can execute specs as mvn test This runs Gauge specs with Maven.

This uses Chrome as default browser for specs execution. Make sure Chrome is installed in your machine and chromedriver is in PATH.

If you want to use Firefox/IE as browser, pass the corresponding argument to set browser environment as follows:

mvn gauge:execute -DspecsDir=specs -Denv="firefox"
mvn gauge:execute -DspecsDir=specs -Denv="ie"


  • Gauge can also be used with other build tools.
  • You can use Gauge even without a build script!
