Unit Testing

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

Standalone test stubs and mocks for JavaScript. Works with any unit testing framework.

Sinon.js is a great library when you want to unit test your code with supports spies, stubs, and mocks. The library has cross browser support and also can run on the server using Node.js.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Compatible
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

Sinon.js is a good library for unit testing your front-end code and has cross browser support
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

Sinon.js can run on node.js to test back-end components and server-side behaviour
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.

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

SinonJS is basically a library that we can use to create object mocks for unit testing
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
