General info

NaturalSpec is a .NET Unit testing framework

NaturalSpec is a .NET UnitTest framework which provides automatically testable specs in natural language. NaturalSpec is based on NUnit and completely written in F# - you don't have to learn F# to use it.

csUnit is an open source unit testing tool for the .NET Framework

csUnit is designed to work with any .NET compliant language. It has specifically been tested with C#, Visual Basic .NET, Managed C++, and J#
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

csUnit is an xUnit type testing framework and follows xUnit concepts
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can test front-end components with NaturalSpecit. It is a Unit testing framework therefore you can test front-end modules and classes independently

Yes

You can unit test front-end components of your applications with csUnit
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end components with NaturalSpec. It is a Unit testing framework therefore you can test back-end modules and classes independently

Yes

You can unit test back-end components of your applications with csUnit
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

Yes

csUnit has fixture methods such as setup and teardown methods
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

Yes

Group fixtures are available in csUnit
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

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

Mocks are available through third party libraries like Moq

You can write your own mock objects manually
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

It contains recipes for combining several test assemblies into one test suite
