BDD / Cucumber Slow

Hello,

in my mind, cucumber is quite slow.
Does somebody have an speed improvement for cucumber?
Wenn I launch a feature everything is loaded, so it takes for a very small 1-feature set 30 sec. until it has been run.

May be, somebody has a hint?

Alternative would be autotest / spork


best regards

Rafael

You can use spork with RubyMine

- Just attach "spork" gem in File | Settings | Ruby SDK and Gems.
- Init sport in your Rails app
- Launch spork drb server from RubyMine | Tools

Now RubyMine starts using --drb option ("Use DRB server" in UI) for new cucumber run configurations

Cucumber will soon get a new parser, which should speed things up considerably if you have many features: http://groups.google.com/group/cukes/browse_thread/thread/4b87ef6add39c0db/cac3252da7262a78?lnk=gst&q=gherkin#cac3252da7262a78

But if you only run a few from your IDE, the slowness is probably in JRuby (if you use that) and the time it takes to load the code you're testing (plus gems it depends on).
