@ciaranmcnulty Thanks for the suggestion. I'll certainly look into this.

Hi all, I'm working on a project that will follow DDD with layers and patterns but I also want to use BDD for acceptance testing outside-in.

With this approach, I wondered whether the Behat scenarios would mainly concentrate on the UI? And what the best practices are?

I've read that ideally we don't want to couple scenarios to a UI that could easily change but I'm not sure what the alternative would be when I want to write scenarios in a TDD fashion before any code/layers/patterns exist. I imagine it'd be quite difficult to write scenarios for DDD related code that does not exist yet whereas the UI is more predictable.

Does the BeforeScenario event hook trigger before Background steps, or only actuall Scenarios? I'm looking for something that fires before scenarios and backgrounds, but not BeforeFeature (can't use static function).
