Unit Testing

General info

NBi is an open-source framework for testing Business Intelligence solutions or validating data quality.

NBi helps you to create tests targeting your databases, cubes, etls and reports. Tests are written in xml using an intuitive syntax therefore thereis no need of any development language. Nbi tests target databases, cubes, etls and reports

Wallaby.js is an integrated continuous testing tool for JavaScript.

Wallaby.js runs your tests immediately as you change your code (you don’t even have to save the file) and reports code coverage and other results directly to your code editor. Its also uses various techniques such as dependency analysis to only execute tests affected by your code changes and parallel test execution to ensure your tests run as fast as possible.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

N/A

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

No

Yes

Wallaby.js can test front-end components and functionality
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Nbi tests Business intelligence software which retrieve, analyze, transform and report data therefore it targets databases, cubes, etls and reports and you can natively connect to any database supporting OleDb or ODBC connection

Yes

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

No

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.

No

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

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

You can create your own mock objects

By use of a third party library Jest works well with wallaby
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Yes, Nbi comes with a solution to automate, as much as possible, the creation of the test-suites through its user interface, named GenBI
