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 various back-end components independently since it is a Unit testing framework
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

It contains class fixtures which are setup once pertest class
