What is Cucumber Dry Run?

The purpose of the Cucumber dry run is to verify compilation faults and compile the Step Definition and Feature files. Dry run’s value might be either true or false. Dry run has the value false by default and it is present in the Test Runner Class file.
If the dry run value is true, Cucumber will check all steps in the Feature file. Within the Step Definition file, it will also check the implementation code of steps in the Feature file.
If any of the steps in the Feature file is missing its implementation in the Step Definition file, a message is thrown. The @CucumberOptions has a dry run parameter that is used to configure the test parameters.
