General info

JDave is a BDD framework for Java

JDave is inspired by RSpec and integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework and Hamcrest as matching library. It uses JUnit adapter to launch JDave specifications. This way it is possible to have IDE, build tool and coverage tool support from day one.

This library was designed to work for both Node.js and browser interpreters and it encourages the TDD (Test Driven Development)

Test doubles can be used with conjuction of other test frameworks such as Jasmine, Jest, Chai, QUnit, Mocha, Tape etc.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

It is compatible with xUnit and supportsxUnit XML output
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Front-end behaviour can be tested with JDave

No

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

Yes

JDave can test server-side behaviour

Yes

Testdouble is primarily used to test server-side functions, behaviours and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

N/A

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

It integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework

Yes

Testdouble includes inbuilt support for mocking
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Specifications can be grouped by tagging them with @Group annotation.
