Acceptance Testing

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.

Specter is a behaviour-driven development framework for .NET and Mono

Specter enables behavior driven development (BDD) by allowing developers to write executable specifications for their objects, before actually implementing them, this is similar to test driven development however the different nomenclature makes it different from writing 'tests' for code that does not exist yet
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

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

Developers can create specfications of the expected front-end behaviours and test them
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

Yes developers can create specfications of the expected back-end behaviours and test these.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

N/A

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

N/A

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.

N/A

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

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

N/A

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 create your own test suites with specter
