Cucumber and Selenium are two popular technologies.

Most of the organizations use Selenium for functional testing. These organizations which are using Selenium want to integrate Cucumber with selenium as Cucumber makes it easy to read and to understand the application flow.

Cucumber tool is based on the Behavior Driven Development framework that acts as the bridge between the following people:

  1. Software Engineer and Business Analyst.
  2. Manual Tester and Automation Tester.
  3. Manual Tester and Developers.

Cucumber also benefits the client to understand the application code as it uses Gherkin language which is in Plain Text. Anyone in the organization can understand the behavior of the software. The syntax's of Gherkin is in the simple text which is readable and understandable.

@Neha, we can use Cucumber framework to test the web-based applications along with Selenium WebDriver. The benefit of using Cucumber with Selenium is that the test cases are written in simple feature files which are easily understood by managers, non-technical stakeholders and business analysts.

And those feature file steps are implemented in step definition file. If you are using maven then you have to add dependencies for Cucumber and WebDriver.
