General info

beanSpec is a java based testing solution that uses Behaviour Driven Development

BeanSpec is a java based testing solution that is used for specifiying, checking and summarizing the behaviour of a component in a declarative, narrative style

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates unit tests for Java software

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates test cases with assertions for classes written in Java code by applying a hybrid approach that generates and optimizes whole test suites towards satisfying a coverage criterion
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

N/A

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

BeanSpec can be used to test front-end components

Yes

You can test front-end code by testing the classes that provide front-end functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

BeanSpec is used to test server-side components and functionality

Yes

You can test server-side functionality and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

You can write your own fixtures but no inbuilt fixtures are provided
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

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)

N/A

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Suites are generated automatically in evosuite
