General info

Jnario is a test framework for Java focusing on the design and documentation aspects of testing

Jnario is based on Xtend and consists of two domain-specific languages, one for writing readable acceptance tests, the other for succinct unit tests. Together they are well suited for behavior-driven development of Java programs.

Enhance PHP is a lightweight Open Source PHP unit testing framework

It has support for mocks and stubs and runs in the browser, or via the command line
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It is an xUnit type testing framework

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can write scenarios to test various front-end behaviours using 'Given', 'When', 'Then' steps to describe simple scenarios

Yes

It tests front-end functionality and can run in the browser
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can write unit tests to test server side behaviours and components using Jnario specs

N/A

Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It contains the Setup & Teardown functions similar to JUnit but less verbose

Yes

One is able to write fixtures in Enhance PHP
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

The Setup & Teardown functions can be used as group fixtures.

Yes

One is able to write group fixtures in Enhance PHP
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 implement mocking through the use of a third partylibrary like Mockito

Yes

Enhance PHP has built-in support for mocks and stubs. You can set up expectations and supply predictable return values
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Jnario Suites allows you to group multiple specifications into suites and execute them together, you do this using the suite wizard

Yes

You can group tests into suites with Enhance PHP
