General info

A testing solution for Java EE applications

BeanTest is a testing solution for Java EE Applications which combines the speed of unit tests with almost the coverage of integration tests with minimal configuration and with standard and well known frameworks like JPA, CDI, Mockito and Junit

Buster.JS is a JavaScript test framework for node and browsers.

Buster.JS is a new JavaScript testing framework. It does browser testing by automating test runs in actual browsers (think JsTestDriver), as well as Node.js testing. It has a bunch of great features.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Buster.Js is a xUnit style Test Framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can test front-end components of your EE application

Yes

It does browser testing with browser automation, QUnit style static HTML page testing, testing in headless browsers and more front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

BeanTest is used to test business logic or the back-end that is information exchange between the database and the UI

Yes

It is a Node.js testing toolkit as well which means it can test back-end behaviour and functionality as well as run in a server environment
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

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

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.

Licence

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)

Yes

You are able to provide your own Mocks in BeanTest to test external dependencies

Buster.JS ships with Sinon.JS. every test in a test case has a sandbox associated with it, making it easy to mock and stub
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
