Cucumber-JVM Step definitions

After creating my feature file in eclipse, i run it as a Cucumber feature. i use the step definition the console gives me to create the first base of the test file

@Given("^the input is <(\\d+)> <(\\d+)>$")


these should be outputted by the console however currently it is showing the feature without the step definitions.

Feature: this is a test
this test is to test if this test works right

Scenario: test runs # src/test/resources/Test.feature:4
Given: i have a test
When: i run the test
Then: i have a working test

this feature is just to check if cucumber is working properly.

the runner:

import cucumber.api.CucumberOptions;
import cucumber.api.junit.Cucumber;
import org.junit.runner.RunWith;

@RunWith(Cucumber.class)
@CucumberOptions(
monochrome = true,
dryRun = false,
format = "pretty",
features = "src/test/resources/"
)
public class RunCukes {
}


what can be the cause of the console not showing all the info?

TL:DR console does not show the step regex for missing steps

EDIT: added feature file

Feature: this is a test
this test is to test if this test works right

Scenario: test runs
Given: i have a test
When: i run the test
Then: i have a working test

The problem is in the feature file. Using : after Given, When and Then is the problem. I was able to reproduce your issue with your feature file. But when I removed the : and ran the feature file, with the same Runner options provided above, I got the regex to implement missing step definitions.

P.S I am using IntelliJ, but don't think it would make a difference.

  Feature: this is a test
  this test is to test if this test works right

  Scenario: test runs # src/test/resources/Test.feature:4
    Given i have a test
    When i run the test
    Then i have a working test

Below is what I got:

Testing started at 19:12 ...

Undefined step: Given  i have a test

1 Scenarios (1 undefined)
3 Steps (3 undefined)
0m0.000s

Undefined step: When  i run the test

You can implement missing steps with the snippets below:
@Given("^i have a test$")

public void i_have_a_test() throws Throwable {
    // Write code here that turns the phrase above into concrete actions
    throw new PendingException();
}

@When("^i run the test$")
public void i_run_the_test() throws Throwable {
    // Write code here that turns the phrase above into concrete actions
    throw new PendingException();
}

@Then("^i have a working test$")
public void i_have_a_working_test() throws Throwable {
    // Write code here that turns the phrase above into concrete actions
    throw new PendingException();
}


Undefined step: Then  i have a working test
