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

Yes, since it is a BDD driven framework, various front-end functionalities can be tested

Yes

You can test UI functionality or behaviour by writing scenarios that cover front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes back-end behaviour can be tested that is interactions with servers/databases

Yes

You can write 'scenarios' to test server-side behaviours
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

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.

You can use third party libraries such as JMock and JMockit to mock objects and functions
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
