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

A set of golang packages that has many tools for testing Go code

Testify is a Go testing framework that has some great features like easier assertions, Test suite Interfaces, and Mocks
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

Yes, since it is also easily hooked to 'testing' package it is used to test front-end components
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

Yes it can also be used to test back-end components and functionality
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

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

You can define group fixtures with JBehave

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.

No

N/A

Licence

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

Its 'mock' package has a mechanism for easily writing mock objects that are used in place of real objects
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Using the 'suite' package developers can build a test suite as a struct build teardown and setup methods as well as testing methods on the struct then run them with 'go test'
