General info

Artos is an opensource BDD testing framework for writing Unit, Intergration and Functional tests

Artos includes pre-configured logging framework and extent reports, utilities to write flow for manual/semi-automated testing and supports BDD testing using cucumber scripts.

LightBDD is a BDD test framework that allows you to create easy to read and maintainable tests

LightBDD is a BDD test framework offering ability to write tests that are easy to read, easy to track during execution and are summarized in user friendly reports. It also allows developers to use all of the standard development tools to maintain them
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It is a xUnit style framework

No

No, but it is Integrated with xUnit frameworkslike NUnit, xUnit, MsTest.TestFramework and Fixie.
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

With Artos you can perform unit tests on front-end components

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour using lightBDD
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can unit test server side behaviours and functionalities by testing specific back-end classes and functions

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour/functionality using lightBDD
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Yes

Fixtures are available through the FeatureFixture class.
Group fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data for a group of tests (group-fixtures). This ensures specific environment for a given group of tests.

N/A

Yes

Group fixtures are available in lightBDD through the FeatureFixture class
Generators
Supports data generators for tests. Data generators generate input data for test. The test is then run for each input data produced in this way.

Mocks
Mocks are objects that simulate the behavior of real objects. Using mocks allows testing some part of the code in isolation (with other parts mocked when needed)

You can use a third party library like mockito

Yes

Mocking is available through the use of third party libraries like moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Artos allows creation of test suites and they are run by use of a test script

Yes

You can group tests into suites
