Acceptance 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.

JBehave is a Behaviour-Driven Development testing framework for java

JBehave is a Behaviour Driven Development framework. It intends to provide an intuitive and accessible way for automated acceptance testing
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No

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 test front-end behaviour (scenarios) with JBehave
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

No

JBehave tests scenarios and behaviours of components, it can test back-end behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

No

Yes

You have a few options for using fixtures in JBehave: you can run your steps before/after each scenario by using LifeCycle: you can use @BeforeStory and @AfterStory annotations or you can define a dummy scenario with your setup/teardown steps
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

You can define group fixtures with JBehave
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

No

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

N/A

BSD-style 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

The best way to mock is to use third party libraries like Mockito, Jmock or Jmockit
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No
