Unit Testing

General info

Javascript BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) based test runner/framework

Contextualised spec runner for JavaScript in the flavour of RSpec (Ruby Spec runner). JSSpec has got 2 really powerful features which helps you to make unit testing easier: 1) Shared examples 2) Shared contexts

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates unit tests for Java software

EvoSuite is a tool that automatically generates test cases with assertions for classes written in Java code by applying a hybrid approach that generates and optimizes whole test suites towards satisfying a coverage criterion
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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

Yes

JSSpec is primarily used for testing front-end/client-side components and functionality

Yes

You can test front-end code by testing the classes that provide front-end functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

Yes

You can test server-side functionality and components
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

You can write your own fixtures but no inbuilt fixtures are provided
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.

N/A

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.

N/A

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

N/A

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

It has a module doubles (mocks/spies) for mocking and spying

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Suites are generated automatically in evosuite
