Acceptance Testing

General info

csUnit is an open source unit testing tool for the .NET Framework

csUnit is designed to work with any .NET compliant language. It has specifically been tested with C#, Visual Basic .NET, Managed C++, and J#

JDave is a BDD framework for Java

JDave is inspired by RSpec and integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework and Hamcrest as matching library. It uses JUnit adapter to launch JDave specifications. This way it is possible to have IDE, build tool and coverage tool support from day one.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

csUnit is an xUnit type testing framework and follows xUnit concepts

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of your applications with csUnit

Yes

Front-end behaviour can be tested with JDave
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with csUnit

Yes

JDave can test 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

Yes

csUnit has fixture methods such as setup and teardown methods

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

Group fixtures are available in csUnit

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)

You can write your own mock objects manually

Yes

It integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

It contains recipes for combining several test assemblies into one test suite

Yes

Specifications can be grouped by tagging them with @Group annotation.
