Hi Jacob,
being Syncope structured with an Apache Maven-based build, the test 
process is based on:

* Maven surefire and failsafe plugins combined with Junit, as defined in 
[1] and enforced by some CI systems as indicated in [2]; moreover:
     * various modules run their own unit tests as part of the standard 
     * there is a dedicated module [3] running integration tests, also 
for the Wicket-based Admin UI
     * while, by default, the integration tests are run with in-memory 
database and embedded Tomcat, more build profiles are available to run 
the test suite against all the supported Java EE containers [4] and 
DBMSs [5]

* various Maven plugins involving Node.js and PhantomJS to run the 
integration tests for the Angular.js-based Enduser UI, in its own 
dedicated module [6]

* the Checkstyle plugin is in place to ensure the basic rules around 
code guidelines

I hope this provides you with some insight; may I ask you the reason 
behind such questions?
