Many aspects are shared among the different approaches. ATDD in Lean-Agile Acceptance Test-Driven Development encompasses aspects of these other approaches. I’ve documented the parts that come specifically from the other driven developments (DDs), including Brian Marick’s examples, Eric Evan’s ubiquitous language, and Dan North’s given-when-then template. The most visible differences are that the tests here are presented in table format rather than in a more textual format, such as BDD's Cucumber language, and they concentrate on functionality instead of the user interface. This book's version of ATDD matches closely that described by Lasse Koskela and Gojko Adzic  and follows the testing recommendations of Jim Coplien .
