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

JGiven is a BDD tool for Java in plain java.

With JGiven Developers write scenarios in plain Java using a fluent, domain-specific API, JGiven generates reports that are readable by domain experts.
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

You can test UI functionality or behaviour by writing scenarios that cover front-end behaviour
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end behaviour/functionality using lightBDD

Yes

You can write 'scenarios' to test server-side behaviours
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.

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

You can use third party libraries such as JMock and JMockit to mock objects and functions
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can group tests into suites
