Unit Testing

General info

Fixie is a .NET test framework similar to NUnit and xUnit

Fixie allows test methods to be created and executed like other test frameworks, but takes a takes a conventions-based approach, which is a benefit as we do not need to use attributes to mark classes and methods as tests

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
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

fixie is an xUnit type testing framework

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of youra pplications with fixie

Yes

DOH is both flexible and extendable and runs in many environments including many browsers to test various front-end functionalities and components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with fixie

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

Yes

Yes, fixie has fixture methods for setting up tests and at the end of tests to destroy them

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.

N/A

Yes

It supports group fixtures
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)

N/A

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group tests into suites

Yes

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