Acceptance Testing

General info

TickSpec is a lightweight Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) framework for .Net

With TickSpeck you can describe behaviour in plain text using the Gherkin business language, execute the behaviour against matching F# 'ticked' methods, or attribute-tagged C# or F# methods, run via your normal test runners or plugins and set breakpoints in the scenarios, step definitions or your code and go (setting breakpoints in the Gherkin is currently not supported in .NET Standard version)

JBehave is a Behaviour-Driven Development testing framework for java

JBehave is a Behaviour Driven Development framework. It intends to provide an intuitive and accessible way for automated acceptance testing
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

You can test front-end behaviour by creating feature specifications for front-end behaviour

Yes

You can test front-end behaviour (scenarios) with JBehave
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

You can test back-end code by creating feature specifications to test back-end behaviour

JBehave tests scenarios and behaviours of components, it can test back-end behaviour
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

Fixtures are available or are derived from the class FeatureFixture

Yes

You have a few options for using fixtures in JBehave: you can run your steps before/after each scenario by using LifeCycle: you can use @BeforeStory and @AfterStory annotations or you can define a dummy scenario with your setup/teardown steps
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

TickSpec contains group fixtures

Yes

You can define group fixtures with JBehave
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)

Yes

By using a third party mocking library like moq

The best way to mock is to use third party libraries like Mockito, Jmock or Jmockit
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

You can create test suites with TickSpec
