General info

Concordion is a tool used to write and manage automated acceptance tests in Java based projects

Concordion specifications are written in Markdown, HTML or Excel and then instrumented with special links, attributes or comments respectively. When the corresponding test fixture class is run, Concordion interprets the instrumentation to execute the test. Concordion lets you write them in normal language using paragraphs, tables and proper punctuation. This makes specification more natural to read and write, and helps everyone to understand and agree about what a feature is supposed to do.

Goblin is a simple Mocha like BDD testing framework for Go

Goblin was inspired by the simplicity and flexibility of NodeBDD and offers many features like the ability to define as many Describe and It blocks as you want, colorful reports and beautiful syntax, running tests with the go test command as usual and more
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 specify tests for front-end components and functionality with concordion

Yes

Yes, since it is a BDD driven framework, various front-end functionalities can be tested
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test server-side components and functionality with concordion.

Yes

Yes back-end behaviour can be tested that is interactions with servers/databases
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Concordion contains fixtures which correspond to a specific instrumentation within the code. That is when specifications are written they are instrumented with special links, attributes or comments which are then run with their corresponding fixtures

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.

Yes

One can group fixtures in concordion

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.

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

By use of third party libraries like mockito

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

One can group tests into suites

N/A
