General info

JGiven is a BDD tool for Java in plain java.

With JGiven Developers write scenarios in plain Java using a fluent, domain-specific API, JGiven generates reports that are readable by domain experts.

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates unit tests for Java software

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates test cases with assertions for classes written in Java code by applying a hybrid approach that generates and optimizes whole test suites towards satisfying a coverage criterion
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 UI functionality or behaviour by writing scenarios that cover front-end behaviour

Yes

You can test front-end code by testing the classes that provide front-end functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can write 'scenarios' to test server-side behaviours

Yes

You can test server-side functionality and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

You can write your own fixtures but no inbuilt fixtures are provided
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

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

You can use third party libraries such as JMock and JMockit to mock objects and functions

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Suites are generated automatically in evosuite
