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.

wru is an essential general purpose test framework compatible with web environment, node.js, Rhino, and now PhantomJS too.

wru is compatible with basically all possible browsers out there included IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Webkit based, Mobile Browsers, and Opera. On server side wru is compatible with latest node.js, Rhino, PhantomJS, and JavaScriptCore versions.
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

Wru is compatible with xUnit
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

Wru tests front-end components and functions, it is compatible with HTML and runs on probably all browsers
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

It is used to test back-end components and behaviour and runs in server environments
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

N/A

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.

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 implement mocking through the use of a third partylibrary like Mockito

You can implement your stubs and mocks using a wru.assert(...) when necessary during a specific test.
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
