Programming language

JavaScript

Java

Category

Unit Testing, Intergration Testing

General info

Teenytest is a simple, zero-config test runner for NodeJS

Teenytest's CLI will run tests with zero public-API and zero configuration

Unitils is an open source library whose goal is to make unit and integration testing easy and maintainable.

Unitils is divided into modules, each of them providing support for a certain aspect of your unit and integration tests. For example if you need mocking for your tests, just include unitils-mock as a dependency, If you would also want to load DbUnit data sets, just include unitils-dbunit
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

It supports xUnit output

No

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

No

Yes

You can perform unit tests on various components and functionality that make up the front-end
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Teenytest tests database connections and other server-side components and behaviour

Yes

Unitils provides support for testing the back-end through modules such as DbUnit which specifically tests your database, i.e connections setup and so on
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

It provides fixtures with the methods beforeAll(),afterEach() and afterAll()beforeAll() creates the browser and gives you a newPage() globalafterEach() will close any pages you created with newPage()afterAll() closes the browser

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.

Yes

Teeny test supports grouping of fixtures

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.

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)

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Grouping is supported through nested tests in which any object can contain any combination of hooks, test functions, and additional sub-test objects.
