Unit Testing

General info

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

MSTest is a Unit testing framework for the .net framework

MSTest is fully integrated with Visual Studios and works natively without the need for any plugins. MSTest is better suited for only using Microsoft technologies rather than mixed technology environments.
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

No

Yes

MsTest is an xUnit type framework
Client-side
Allows testing code execution on the client, such as a web browser

Yes

You can perform unit tests on various components and functionality that make up the front-end

Yes

MsTest can test various front-end components
Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

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

Yes

With MSTest you can test various back-end components individually
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

Yes

MSTest contains fixture methods TestInitialize to setup your environment and TestCleanup to destroy the test environment
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 available
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

You can create mock objects using the third party library moq
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

Yes

Grouping of tests into suites is possible with MSTest
