General info

Cuppa is a testing framework for Java 8+

Cuppa is a testing framework for Java 8+ that is descriptive that is; it uses strings,not identifiers , to clearly describe the behaviour you are testing it also allows you to Group tests together by creating a structure in your test files to reduce repetition and improve readability and also you Define tests at runtime

BDD testing framework for Go

Ginkgo is a BDD testing framework for Go that has a great matcher library to go with it called Gomega and intergrates with the standard testing library
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 your front-end code as individual components of code

Yes

Yes, by creating unit tests then testing individual front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test server-side components and functionality with Cuppa.

Yes

Yes by creating unit tests then testing various back-end components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixtures are available via the Setup and Teardown functions

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 groups of tests can share these fixture methods

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.

N/A

Yes

They are available by running the command: 'ginko bootstrap'
Licence

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)

N/A

Yes

Dvelopers can generate mocks by using the third party package 'gomock'
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

This is a feature of cuppa, it allows you to group your tests together

Yes

Ginkgo allows you to group tests in 'Describe' and 'Context' container blocks. It also provides 'It' and 'Specify' blocks to hold your assertions
