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

Lettuce is a BDD testing tool for Python

Lettuce is a testing tool for Python which is inspired by Ruby's Cucumber that supports Gherkin. It can execute plain-text functional descriptions as automated tests for Python projects just like Cucumber does for Ruby
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

However It can generate xml results for behaviour tests xUnit style
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

By integrating Lettuce with Selenium’s Python bindings, you have a robust framework for testing Django applications. It can test front-end behaviour
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

Lettuce can test various server and database behaviours and interactions
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.

Yes

By using a third party library
Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Unknown

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

By adding the lettuce-tools library one has access to the Mock module to implement a configurable http REST mock.
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

It allows grouping of tests
