Test Framework Comparison

Comments on Test Framework Comparison by Justin Lee in The Server Side.
JUnit has competitors but with version 4, it should stay as the most used and the one to know. There are more and more integration with IDE. It will use annotations, group of tests, no need to subclass, dependent methods, exceptions, timeout
Still, depending on the project, JUnit may not always be the best choice and its competitors are easy (10 minutes) to learn. TestNG seems the one with the most advanced features (methods can take parameter, logging, reporting …) and JTiger the simpliest to use (NUnit is cited too, but not covered.)
The article lacks information about IDE integration and integration is possible with continuous integration frameworks.
