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.

Nodeunit is a Nodejs testing framework that has Simple syntax, powerful tools. Nodeunit provides easy async unit testing for node.js and the browser.

Nodeunit was one of the first testing frameworks developed for node. It was very useful at the time, but there's an overwhelming number of other worthwhile testing solutions out there that are actively maintained. tap, ava, tape, mocha, jasmine, jest, ... the list goes on and on.
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

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

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

No

Yes

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.

No
