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

LightBDD is a BDD test framework that allows you to create easy to read and maintainable tests

LightBDD is a BDD test framework offering ability to write tests that are easy to read, easy to track during execution and are summarized in user friendly reports. It also allows developers to use all of the standard development tools to maintain them
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

No, but it is Integrated with xUnit frameworkslike NUnit, xUnit, MsTest.TestFramework and Fixie.
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

You can test front-end behaviour using lightBDD
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

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

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour/functionality using lightBDD
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

Yes

Fixtures are available through the FeatureFixture class.
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

Yes

Group fixtures are available in lightBDD through the FeatureFixture class
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.
