This paper proposes an approach for modeling and execut- ing acceptance web test cases and describes a suite of tools to support it. The main objective is to assist the use of Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) in web applications by providing mechanisms to support customer-developer communication and by helping test case cre- ation. Initially, the set of web pages and relations (links) associated with a user story is modeled. Functional test possibilities involving these re- lations are automatically summarized in a graph, being each path of the graph a user story testing scenario. Once a testing scenario is accepted by the customer, a testing script is automatically created. A web testing framework then executes the script, triggering the ATDD process.
