In my company we have our tests specified in Gherkin (Cucumber), and we use Jenkins to schedule the execution of these tests.

We have the need of a management tool, where we can associate the tests to the requirements and have the reports. Are there some tools that read the Cucumber feature files?

user1553, I do not understand your goal. Does the management tool need to interact with jenkins? Should the report show the results of your tests, or should the report just show the relationship between requirements and Cucumber feature files? Or do you consider the Cucumber feature files to be the requirements? –  user246 Nov 3 '11 at 15:54
If I've understood right, you can use Cucumber to run your Gherkin tests. So I guess it's just a question of how you go about invoking Cucumber. If you've got your CI server working, it shouldn't be too hard to add a "build" step that will execute your Gherkin tests. –  Stephen Gross Nov 8 '11 at 19:25

Try (which I founded).

With Test Collab, you can link test cases with their automated class methods. Take a look at this screencast: It demonstrates integration of test cases with PHPUnit_Selenium package. Similarly cucumber can be integrated too.

We do not have automated scheduling feature yet - but you can do this:

Create test execution at Test Collab via API triggered by your Jenkins. Once test execution is assigned, Test Collab will automatically trigger your cucumber tests.

If you are trying to associate specs with tests, then You're cuking it wrong.

If you are using cucumber right, the specs ARE the tests.

I'd suggest you get 'The Cucumber Book" from the Pragmatic Programmers. Tons of good stuff in there about how to use the tool effectively.
