General info

Rich testing framework for Go

Gocheck is a richer testing framework for Golang libraries and applications that includes checkers and assertions among many other features, it also works as an extension to the testing package and 'go test'

Dbunit is a Junit extension for unit testing database driven programs

DbUnit has the ability to export and import your database data to and from XML datasets. Since version 2.0, DbUnit can also work with very large datasets when used in streaming mode and can also help you to verify that your database data match an expected set of values
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

It is a JUnit extension which is one of the most widely known members of the xUnit family
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Yes, supports end-to-end testing so various front-end components can be tested

No

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes end-to-end testing means that various back-end components and behaviour can be tested

Yes

Yes its used to test database functionality
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 with Gocheck either per suite and/or per setup and teardown

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 as a suite

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.

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

Through third party libraries like gomock

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

When testing, developers can create suites of tests
