Acceptance Testing

General info

D.O.H means Dojo Objective Harness, it's a test framework for the DOJO web apps which tests and runs on the browser and on cloud test execution services like Browserstack

Dojo is a Typescript framework build for modern web application, and D.O.H is a basically unit test library to test JavaScript functions and custom widgets

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.
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

DOH is both flexible and extendable and runs in many environments including many browsers to test various front-end functionalities and components

Yes

You can test the front-end part like the GUI using cucumber and selenium, they integrate well to test your front-end.
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Pieces of back-end code can be tested with DOH as it performs Unit tests. It is flexible enough to test server-side behaviour and functionality

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
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

It has various fixture methods like setUp(), tearDown() and Performance test fixtures which are just like a regular test fixtures, but with extra options. Specifically, it uses 'testType' to mark it as a "perf" test, which instructs the D.O.H. runner to treat the tests as performance and use the calibrate and execute test runner

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

It supports group fixtures

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
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

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)

N/A

Yes

By using all of RSpec’s supported mocking frameworks (RSpec, Mocha, RR, Flexmock)
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

There is a function that allows you to group tests, the 'doh.register(...)' function. It's most commonly used for registering Unit Tests

No
