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.

Test::Unit is a unit testing framework for Ruby

Test::Unit is an implementation of the xUnit testing framework for ruby which is used for Unit Testing. However Test::Unit has been left in the standard library to support legacy test suites therefore if you are writing new test code use Minitest instead of Test::Unit
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

Yes

test-unit is a xUnit family unit testing framework for Ruby
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

It could have tested some front-end components but its now legacy hence wouldn't work with the many new 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

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

Fixture methods are available through its ClassMethods Module
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

Group fixture methods are supported
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.

No

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

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

No

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

No
