Test automation technologies are rapidly evolving and new methods and tools contantly appear the in industry. One of the new technologies is a follow-up to the Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) approach in which executable test specifications are written in the form of regular natural-language sentences and are then directly executed for the purpose of testing. Development of test suites in such a manner provides various benefits (e.g., enabling testers to write test cases in natural language) and, at the same time, exposes many research challenges which have to be addressed. We report in this paper an exploratory case-study, in the form of an experience report, with developing executable test specifications in a next generation automation framework named Gauge. The reported industrial experience is in the context of a large software testing company named Saha BT A.Ş. which provides automated testing tools and services to a large number of clients in several countries.
