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.

Randoop.NET is an API fuzzing unit test generator for .NET libraries.

Randoop.NET creates test cases by a sequence of API method calls and it improves on random and static test generation by incorporating feedback during test generation.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

Randoop.net is an xUnit style testing framework
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 components by testing individual front-end classes and modules
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 components by testing individual back-end classes and modules
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

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

You can group your fixtures inside your fixtures directories

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

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Yes

You can generate test suites with Randoop
