General info

Test::Unit is a unit testing framework for Ruby

Test::Unit is an implementation of the xUnit testing framework for ruby which is used for Unit Testing. However Test::Unit has been left in the standard library to support legacy test suites therefore if you are writing new test code use Minitest instead of Test::Unit

D.O.H means Dojo Objective Harness, it's a test framework for the DOJO web apps which tests and runs on the browser and on cloud test execution services like Browserstack

Dojo is a Typescript framework build for modern web application, and D.O.H is a basically unit test library to test JavaScript functions and custom widgets
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

test-unit is a xUnit family unit testing framework for Ruby

No

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

It could have tested some front-end components but its now legacy hence wouldn't work with the many new front-end components

Yes

DOH is both flexible and extendable and runs in many environments including many browsers to test various front-end functionalities and components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Yes

Pieces of back-end code can be tested with DOH as it performs Unit tests. It is flexible enough to test server-side behaviour and functionality
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixture methods are available through its ClassMethods Module

It has various fixture methods like setUp(), tearDown() and Performance test fixtures which are just like a regular test fixtures, but with extra options. Specifically, it uses 'testType' to mark it as a "perf" test, which instructs the D.O.H. runner to treat the tests as performance and use the calibrate and execute test runner
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

Group fixture methods are supported

Yes

It supports group 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.

No

N/A

Licence
Licence type governing the use and redistribution of the software

LGPLv2.1, Ruby Licence

FreeBSD 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

N/A

Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

No

Yes

There is a function that allows you to group tests, the 'doh.register(...)' function. It's most commonly used for registering Unit Tests
