Unit Testing

General info

Standalone test stubs and mocks for JavaScript. Works with any unit testing framework.

Sinon.js is a great library when you want to unit test your code with supports spies, stubs, and mocks. The library has cross browser support and also can run on the server using Node.js.

Dbunit is a Junit extension for unit testing database driven programs

DbUnit has the ability to export and import your database data to and from XML datasets. Since version 2.0, DbUnit can also work with very large datasets when used in streaming mode and can also help you to verify that your database data match an expected set of values
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Compatible

Yes

It is a JUnit extension which is one of the most widely known members of the xUnit family
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Sinon.js is a good library for unit testing your front-end code and has cross browser support

No

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Sinon.js can run on node.js to test back-end components and server-side behaviour

Yes

Yes its used to test database functionality
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

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.

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

SinonJS is basically a library that we can use to create object mocks for unit testing

No

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups
