Acceptance Testing

General info

JBehave is a Behaviour-Driven Development testing framework for java

JBehave is a Behaviour Driven Development framework. It intends to provide an intuitive and accessible way for automated acceptance testing

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.
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 (scenarios) with JBehave

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

JBehave tests scenarios and behaviours of components, it can test back-end behaviour

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour by creating testing specifications to test back-end behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

You have a few options for using fixtures in JBehave: you can run your steps before/after each scenario by using LifeCycle: you can use @BeforeStory and @AfterStory annotations or you can define a dummy scenario with your setup/teardown steps

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

You can define group fixtures with JBehave

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.

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)

The best way to mock is to use third party libraries like Mockito, Jmock or Jmockit

Yes

You can create mocks using third party libraries like moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

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