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.

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 the front-end part like the GUI using cucumber with serenity, they integrate well to test your front-end.

No

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

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

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

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.

Yes

You can group your fixtures inside your fixtures directories

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

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

Yes

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

No

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
