Programming language

JavaScript

Java

Category

End-to-End Testing, Browser Automation

Acceptance Testing

General info

Suitest is a freemium test automation tool specially designed for Smart/AndroidApple TV, XBOX, PlayStation4 and websites

Suitest provides the codeless visual test editor on it's platform to easily create the automation scripts without any knowledge of programming languages. You can also see the version and result history. And Test execution is pretty fast

JDave is a BDD framework for Java

JDave is inspired by RSpec and integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework and Hamcrest as matching library. It uses JUnit adapter to launch JDave specifications. This way it is possible to have IDE, build tool and coverage tool support from day one.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

No, Since Suitest has a created custom framework service to test the apps on TV, Gaming consoles and website

No

Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

Suitetest allows for testing front-end components and functionality, it is a browser automation tool after all.

Yes

Front-end behaviour can be tested with JDave
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Since it performs end-to-end testing this includes critical functionalities like database/server connections, communications and other server-side functionalities

Yes

JDave can test server-side behaviour
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

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.

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

Mocks are available

Yes

It integrates JMock 2 as mocking framework
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

You can create suites in suitetest

Yes

Specifications can be grouped by tagging them with @Group annotation.
