Acceptance Testing

General info

Fuchu is functional test library for F# / C# / VB.NET

Fuchu is a test library for .NET, that supports C# and VB.NET but with a special focus on F#. It draws heavily from Haskell's test-framework and HUnit.

Specter is a behaviour-driven development framework for .NET and Mono

Specter enables behavior driven development (BDD) by allowing developers to write executable specifications for their objects, before actually implementing them, this is similar to test driven development however the different nomenclature makes it different from writing 'tests' for code that does not exist yet
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 front-end components by testing individual front-end classes and modules

Yes

Developers can create specfications of the expected front-end behaviours and test them
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components by testing individual back-end classes and modules

Yes

Yes developers can create specfications of the expected back-end behaviours and test these.
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It can do TestFixtureSetups (SetUp/TearDown), but not TestFixtureTearDowns (not unless you treat that test suite separately)

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

Group fixtures are available in Fuchu

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

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

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

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can organize tests in suites and give them names

Yes

You can create your own test suites with specter
