JUnit vs pytest: What are the differences?

Developers describe JUnit as "A programmer-oriented testing framework for Java". JUnit is a simple framework to write repeatable tests. It is an instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks. On the other hand, pytest is detailed as "A full-featured Python testing tool to help you write better programs". A framework makes it easy to write small tests, yet scales to support complex functional testing for applications and libraries. It is a mature full-featured Python testing tool.

JUnit and pytest belong to "Testing Frameworks" category of the tech stack.

JUnit and pytest are both open source tools. It seems that JUnit with 7.53K GitHub stars and 2.8K forks on GitHub has more adoption than pytest with 4.42K GitHub stars and 1.06K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, JUnit has a broader approval, being mentioned in 65 company stacks & 54 developers stacks; compared to pytest, which is listed in 11 company stacks and 11 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to JUnit and pytest?
NUnit
An evolving, open source framework designed for writing and running tests in Microsoft .NET programming languages.It is an aspect of test-driven development , which is part of a larger software design paradigm known as Extreme Programming
TestNG
It is a testing framework designed to simplify a broad range of testing needs, it covers all categories of tests: unit, functional, end-to-end, integration, etc.Run your tests in arbitrarily big thread pools with various policies available (all methods in their own thread, one thread per test class, etc.
Mockito
It is a mocking framework that tastes really good. It lets you write beautiful tests with a clean & simple API. It doesn’t give you hangover because the tests are very readable and they produce clean verification errors.
Arquillian
It is an integration and functional testing platform that can be used for Java middleware testing. With the main goal of making integration (and functional) tests as simple to write as unit tests, it brings the tests to the runtime environment, freeing developers from managing the runtime from within the test.
Selenium
Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
