General info

An automation tool for Behavior-Driven Development

The specifications are written in plain texts, which allows them to be easily understandable for all stakeholders. Cucumber Framework also supports languages beyond Ruby e.g. Java, JavaScript and Scala.

Testoob is an advanced unit testing framework for Python.

Testoob integrates with existing unittest test suites. It contains many features like: a filter which tests to run with regular expressions, output test results as XML/HTML/PDF, test skipping, color output on a terminal 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 test the front-end part like the GUI using cucumber and selenium, they integrate well to test your front-end.

Yes

Testoob can test front-end features since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function that is on the client side
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components such as APIs using rest & soap clients, and databases using whatever client libraries were provided by the libraries that existed in those stacks

Yes

Testoob can test back-end functionality since it is a unit testing tool. One can write a test for each function in the back-end.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

TestOOB extends unittest and prepares fixtures by use of the 'setUp() function just like unittest
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

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

Yes

The 'setUp()' function allows you to group your initialization functions
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.

Yes

You can group your fixtures inside your fixtures directories

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

Mocks are available - testoob can acess library unittest.mock which is used for mocking
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Yes

One can build suites with testoob
