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

NBi is an open-source framework for testing Business Intelligence solutions or validating data quality.

NBi helps you to create tests targeting your databases, cubes, etls and reports. Tests are written in xml using an intuitive syntax therefore thereis no need of any development language. Nbi tests target databases, cubes, etls and reports
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

No

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

Nbi tests Business intelligence software which retrieve, analyze, transform and report data therefore it targets databases, cubes, etls and reports and you can natively connect to any database supporting OleDb or ODBC connection
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

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.

No

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.

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

You can create your own mock objects
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Yes, Nbi comes with a solution to automate, as much as possible, the creation of the test-suites through its user interface, named GenBI
