Unit Testing

General info

It's a web based service platform. Script-less REST and SOAP API testing, UI testing, load/performance, and security testing that’s easy to use.

Parasoft SOAtest brings artificial intelligence and machine learning to functional testing, to help users test applications with multiple interfaces (UI, REST & SOAP APIs, web services, microservices, and more), simplifying automated end-to-end testing (databases, MQ, JMS, EDI, or even things like Kafka). Unlike any other API testing tool, Parasoft SOAtest mitigates the cost of re-work by proactively adjusting your library of tests as services change.

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

SOAtest is a UI and API testing framework that tests front-end functionality by capturing user interactions directly in the browser without requiring any scripting

Yes

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

No

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

No

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.

No

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.

No

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

N/A

zlib License

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)

No

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

No

Yes

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