General info

HavaRuner is a Java test framework with built-in concurrency support, suites and scenarios

HavaRunner is a Java test framework that has built in support for concurrency and enables you to create suites. You can run the same test against multiple scenarios and speeds up development cycles with faster tests.HavaRunner is a JUnit runner, which means that it is built on top of JUnit it's fairly straightforward to adopt it in a codebase that already has JUnit tests.

TestCafe is a Node.js tool to automate end-to-end web testing.

TestCafe runs on Windows, MacOs, and Linux and supports mobile, remote and cloud browsers (UI or headless). It is also free and open source

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

We can mock requests with the 'RequestMock' hook
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group your tests by annotating them as @PartOf a suite
