General info

wru is an essential general purpose test framework compatible with web environment, node.js, Rhino, and now PhantomJS too.

wru is compatible with basically all possible browsers out there included IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, IE9, IE10, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Webkit based, Mobile Browsers, and Opera. On server side wru is compatible with latest node.js, Rhino, PhantomJS, and JavaScriptCore versions.

NBi is an open-source framework for testing Business Intelligence solutions or validating data quality.

NBi helps you to create tests targeting your databases, cubes, etls and reports. Tests are written in xml using an intuitive syntax therefore thereis no need of any development language. Nbi tests target databases, cubes, etls and reports
xUnit
Set of frameworks originating from SUnit (Smalltalk's testing framework). They share similar structure and functionality.

Yes

Wru is compatible with xUnit

No

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

Yes

Wru tests front-end components and functions, it is compatible with HTML and runs on probably all browsers

No

Server-side
Allows testing the bahovior of a server-side code

Yes

It is used to test back-end components and behaviour and runs in server environments

Yes

Nbi tests Business intelligence software which retrieve, analyze, transform and report data therefore it targets databases, cubes, etls and reports and you can natively connect to any database supporting OleDb or ODBC connection
Fixtures
Allows defining a fixed, specific states of data (fixtures) that are test-local. This ensures specific environment for a single test

N/A

No

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.

N/A

No

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)

You can implement your stubs and mocks using a wru.assert(...) when necessary during a specific test.

Yes

You can create your own mock objects
Grouping
Allows organizing tests in groups

N/A

Yes

Yes, Nbi comes with a solution to automate, as much as possible, the creation of the test-suites through its user interface, named GenBI
