General info

Gauge is a light-weight cross-platform test automation tool for writing acceptance tests.

Gauge is a free and open source framework for writing and running acceptance tests. Some of its key features include: -Simple, flexible and rich syntax based on Markdown.; -Consistent cross platform/language support for writing test code.; -A modular architecture with plugins support.

It's a web based service platform. Script-less REST and SOAP API testing, UI testing, load/performance, and security testing that’s easy to use.

Parasoft SOAtest brings artificial intelligence and machine learning to functional testing, to help users test applications with multiple interfaces (UI, REST & SOAP APIs, web services, microservices, and more), simplifying automated end-to-end testing (databases, MQ, JMS, EDI, or even things like Kafka). Unlike any other API testing tool, Parasoft SOAtest mitigates the cost of re-work by proactively adjusting your library of tests as services change.
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 behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour

Yes

SOAtest is a UI and API testing framework that tests front-end functionality by capturing user interactions directly in the browser without requiring any scripting
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour

No

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

No

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.

No

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

No

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 mocks using third party libraries like moq

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create test suites with Gauge which can be run using multiple parameters.

No
