General info

A Python unit testing framework modelled after unittest

Testify is modelled after unittest but has more features while still supporting unittest classes. It has more pythonic naming conventions, an better test runner output visually, a decorator-based approach to fixture methods among many other features

A testing solution for Java EE applications

BeanTest is a testing solution for Java EE Applications which combines the speed of unit tests with almost the coverage of integration tests with minimal configuration and with standard and well known frameworks like JPA, CDI, Mockito and Junit
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

Yes

Front-end functionality and behaviour can be tested by Testify.

Yes

You can test front-end components of your EE application
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

Testify can test various server and database behaviours and functionality

Yes

BeanTest is used to test business logic or the back-end that is information exchange between the database and the UI
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 supported and it follows a decorator based approach, that is they are written similar to decorators

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 fixtures are supported

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

One can create generator methods to yield runnable test methods which will pick out the test methods from your TestCases, and then exclude any in any of your exclude_suites method.If there are any require_suites, it will then further limit itself to test methods in those suites.

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

It includes the turtle mock object library

Yes

You are able to provide your own Mocks in BeanTest to test external dependencies
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Testify includes support for detecting and running test suites, grouped by modules, classes, or individual test methods.
