Evaluation report of different testing tools

HI ..

I need to evaluate different testing tools and prepare a report.
I need to see 2 commetial tools and 2 open source tools.
And then prepare a report.
Currently i am taking the following parameters for evaluation:--

1 JDK Version specific (Limitation on certain versions of JDK)

2 Generates JUnit Test cases?
3 Reporting formats (HTML, PDF, XML)
4 Categories of unit-testing (EJB, DB, Core Java, Servlets, JSP)
5 Provides Mock libraries (for interfaces and classes)
6 Accepts UML Model to generate test cases?

Could you please suggest some more points for evaluation.
I am taking JUNIT and JTEST for doing this activity.
Could pls suggest one commertial tool and one open source tool or frame work.
It is only for JAVA Application.

Thanks And Regards,
Chandrakanth

Some other criteria: speed, are the test cases coupled to the tool, etc

I am taking JUNIT and JTEST for doing this activity.

JUnit and JTest serve entirely different purposes and a comparison would not be meaningful. JUnit is a testing framework. JTest is a product that does static analysis and generates tests.

Could pls suggest one commertial tool and one open source tool or frame work.

As a commercial tool in the same arena as JTest, you could use Agitar. As an open source tool in the same arena as JUnit, you could use TestNG. However wheile JUnit/TestNG can be compared and JTest/Agitar can be compared, the four cannot be as they do different things and serve different roles.

You could start by looking at the list of open source Java testing tools to choose something that has the same goal as the commercial frameworks you are choosing. Alternatively, you could compare the goals of commercial products vs open source products for testing.

Commercial Tools like JTest and Agitar seem to be providing JUnit tests automatically, + some more jobs like profiling, probing, defect analysis, performance check, method calls count etc...

Their directions are not comparable to that of JUnit, which is just a framework that enables you to write Unit tests conforming to JUnit standards, either manually or using some meta information.

Have you bought JTest? It comes with a plugin to Eclipse that you call from the IDE. Parasoft (the vendor) provides excellent support to their customers along with a manual.

If you have a more specific question, feel free to reply.

I didn't ask if you installed it. I asked if you bought it. The reason being that the first step would be to e-mail Parasoft support for help. If you didn't buy the product, it isn't freeware and you aren't going to be able to run it anyway.

While I could write up steps on how to run it, the Parasoft folks get paid to do so. So I'll let them do it .
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
