Acceptance Testing

General info

Cucumber-JVM is a pure Java implementation of Cucumber

The specifications are written in plain texts, which allows them to be easily understandable by all stakeholders.

Gauge is a light-weight cross-platform test automation tool for writing acceptance tests.

Gauge is a free and open source framework for writing and running acceptance tests. Some of its key features include: -Simple, flexible and rich syntax based on Markdown.; -Consistent cross platform/language support for writing test code.; -A modular architecture with plugins support.
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 the front-end part like the GUI using cucumber with serenity, they integrate well to test your front-end.

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components such as API's using rest&soap clients, and databases

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Using the cucumber extension aruba you can create fixures in two steps: 1.Create a fixtures-directory; 2.Create fixture files in this directory

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

You can group your fixtures inside your fixtures directories

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 using all of RSpec’s supported mocking frameworks (RSpec, Mocha, RR, Flexmock)

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.
