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.

BDD style testing framework for Go

Goconvey is a two pronged testing tool consisting of a test runner that watches your code for changes, runs 'go test' and renders your results in a web browser and the second a library that allows you to write BDD-style tests with standard 'go test' functions
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

Yes, Goconvey can perform front-end tests
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

Yes

Yes one can perform end-to-end HTTP tests with goconvey to see how an application works against remote servers
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

Yes, Goconvey uses scopes to define fixtures and a reset function for teardown
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 can define group fixtures using scopes
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.

N/A

Yes

The web UI has a button to open the built in generator
Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Eclipse Public License v1.0

Goconvey License

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

Using the mock package or mockery library to autogenerate mock code
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

Similar to a table driven approach an entire suite can be contained in a single function
