Acceptance Testing

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.

Robot is a Python framework used for acceptance/functional testing

Robot is an automated test framework which has a simple plain text syntax and can be extended easily with Python or Java libraries. It can run on the .net-based IronPython and on Jython which is Java based.
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

Robot has a rich library and can also be easily integrated with Selenium for browser automation to test front-end components
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

Robot can be used for back-end tests as well
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

There is no inbuilt way to work with fixtures in Robot however it can integrate with unittest and use fixtures that way
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.

By integrating with unittest
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

Robot has a library called the Robot Framework Faker library. It contains 147 keywords used for generating random test data
Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

Eclipse Public License v1.0

Apache License 2.0

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

Robot can access Python's mock library for mocking
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

One can create a test suite with Robot
