General info

LightBDD is a BDD test framework that allows you to create easy to read and maintainable tests

LightBDD is a BDD test framework offering ability to write tests that are easy to read, easy to track during execution and are summarized in user friendly reports. It also allows developers to use all of the standard development tools to maintain them

JDave is a BDD framework for Java

JDave is inspired by RSpec and integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework and Hamcrest as matching library. It uses JUnit adapter to launch JDave specifications. This way it is possible to have IDE, build tool and coverage tool support from day one.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No, but it is Integrated with xUnit frameworkslike NUnit, xUnit, MsTest.TestFramework and Fixie.

No

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

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour using lightBDD

Yes

Front-end behaviour can be tested with JDave
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour/functionality using lightBDD

Yes

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

Yes

Fixtures are available through the FeatureFixture class.

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

Group fixtures are available in lightBDD through the FeatureFixture class

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

Mocking is available through the use of third party libraries like moq

Yes

It integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group tests into suites

Yes

Specifications can be grouped by tagging them with @Group annotation.
