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

BDD style testing framework for Go

Goconvey is a two pronged testing tool consisting of a test runner that watches your code for changes, runs 'go test' and renders your results in a web browser and the second a library that allows you to write BDD-style tests with standard 'go test' functions
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests
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

Yes one can perform end-to-end HTTP tests with goconvey to see how an application works against remote servers
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Yes, Goconvey uses scopes to define fixtures and a reset function for teardown
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.

Yes

One can define group fixtures using scopes
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.

Yes

The web UI has a button to open the built in generator
Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Goconvey License

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

Yes

Using the mock package or mockery library to autogenerate mock code
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Similar to a table driven approach an entire suite can be contained in a single function
