  3. cucumber-junit
  4. cucumber-jvm-deps
  5. cucumber-reporting

There are many options to download Cucumber jars for Eclipse, can follow any of these below:

  • Download Cucumber Jars from Online Maven Repository
  • Download Cucumber Jars from oss.sonatype.org
  • Download Cucumber Jars from Maven dependencies (Easiest)

Option 1 : Download Cucumber Jars from Online Maven Repository

  1. Go to https://search.maven.org.

Download Cucumber JVM for Eclipse

  1. Search for cucumber-core in the Central Maven Repository. It will return the Cucumber Core jars. Click on the jar.

Cucumber_2

  1. It will display a pop up and ask you to save the cucumber core jar file.

Cucumber_3

  1. Just like this, one by one search for every other jar file mentioned above and downloads these to your drive.

Cucumber_7

Note that core, java and junit files all need to be the same file version e.g. 1.2.0

Also, one most important thing to know is to download the correct Jars. As when you search for these libraries, you will get many options to download. So below chart will help you to install the right libraries from GroupID.

Option 3 : Download Cucumber Jars from Maven dependencies

This is the most common and effective way of setting up cucumber with eclipse. But this is bit tricky for the people who do not have much experience with Maven and may end up in wasting a lot of time. There are few prerequisites for setting up cucumber in eclipse.

  1. Install Maven in Eclipse IDE
  2. Create a New Maven Project in Eclipse

Once Maven is installed on eclipse and a Maven project is created, the next step is to add cucumber dependencies on the project. I have written a nice tutorial on Maven and how to add dependencies in to Maven project. Please follow the Step 4 : Add Dependencies to the Maven Repository at this article. The way we have added Selenium dependencies in the article the same way add the below mentioned dependencies in to the Maven POM.

Do not forget to add all the dependencies for all the below mentioned jars required for Cucumber set up:

  1. cucumber-core
  2. cucumber-java
  3. cucumber-junit
  4. cucumber-jvm-deps
  5. cucumber-reporting
  6. gherkin
  7. junit
  8. mockito-all
  9. cobertura

For example, Open the pom.xml file and Copy the following inside the dependencies tag.

<dependency>
			<groupId>info.cukes</groupId>
			<artifactId>cucumber-java</artifactId>
			<version>1.1.5</version>
			<scope>test</scope>
		</dependency>

		<dependency>
			<groupId>info.cukes</groupId>
			<artifactId>cucumber-jvm</artifactId>
