It is common, especially in functional tests on any front-end, to include text validation in our tests to verify that the returned value is the expected one. This article has the intent to show the difference between assertTrue and assertEquals to verify any information in an automated test script.
Those commands can be found in Java testing libraries like JUnit or TestNG and we call these methods assertions.
The assertEquals assertion will compare the expected information you have to be equals to the actual information from your target (E.g: a text on a web page).
The assertTrue assertion will compare the expected result against true or false verification. If your result is true you have success, otherwise, an error will be shown.
The demand for delivering quality software faster — or “Quality at Speed” — requires organizations to search for solutions in Agile, continuous integration (CI), and DevOps methodologies. Test automation is an essential part of these aspects.
