General info

Spinach is a BDD framework on top of Gherkin

Spinach is a high-level BDD framework that leverages the Gherkin language to help define executable specifications of your application or library's acceptance criteria.

HavaRuner is a Java test framework with built-in concurrency support, suites and scenarios

HavaRunner is a Java test framework that has built in support for concurrency and enables you to create suites. You can run the same test against multiple scenarios and speeds up development cycles with faster tests.HavaRunner is a JUnit runner, which means that it is built on top of JUnit it's fairly straightforward to adopt it in a codebase that already has JUnit tests.
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

N/A

Yes

You can test front-end functionality and components with havarunner
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test any server-side behaviour with Spinach

Yes

HavaRunner is able to test server side functions and components
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.

Yes

Spinach has inbuilt generator methods

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

Spinach can access the rspec-mocks methods

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Spinach Integrates with your RSpec test suite which allows declaring example groups and contexts.

Yes

You can group your tests by annotating them as @PartOf a suite
