    • Method Detail

      • isNullOrEmpty

        public void isNullOrEmpty()
        Verifies that the actual CharSequence is empty, i.e., it has a length of 0, or is null.

        If you do not want to accept a null value, use isEmpty() instead.

        Both of these assertions will succeed:

         String emptyString = ""
         assertThat(emptyString).isNullOrEmpty();
        
         String nullString = null;
         assertThat(nullString).isNullOrEmpty();
        Whereas these assertions will fail:
         assertThat("a").isNullOrEmpty();
         assertThat("   ").isNullOrEmpty();
        Specified by:
        isNullOrEmpty in interface EnumerableAssert<SELF extends AbstractCharSequenceAssert<SELF,​ACTUAL>,​ACTUAL extends CharSequence>
        Throws:
        AssertionError - if the actual CharSequence has a non-zero length.
      • isEmpty

        public void isEmpty()
        Verifies that the actual CharSequence is empty, i.e., it has a length of 0 and is not null.

        If you want to accept a null value as well as a 0 length, use isNullOrEmpty() instead.

        This assertion will succeed:

         String emptyString = ""
         assertThat(emptyString).isEmpty();
        Whereas these assertions will fail:
         String nullString = null;

        public SELF isBlank()
        Verifies that the actual CharSequence is blank, i.e. is null, empty or consists of one or more whitespace characters (according to Character.isWhitespace(char)).

        The definition of this method has changed, the old behaviour is now under containsOnlyWhitespaces().

      • usingComparator

        public SELF usingComparator​(Comparator<? super ACTUAL> customComparator,
                                    String customComparatorDescription)
        Description copied from class: AbstractAssert
        Use the given custom comparator instead of relying on actual type A equals method for incoming assertion checks.

        The custom comparator is bound to assertion instance, meaning that if a new assertion instance is created, the default comparison strategy will be used.

        Examples :

         // frodo and sam are instances of Character with Hobbit race (obviously :).
         // raceComparator implements Comparator<Character>
         assertThat(frodo).usingComparator(raceComparator, "Hobbit Race Comparator").isEqualTo(sam);
        Specified by:
        usingComparator in interface Assert<SELF extends AbstractCharSequenceAssert<SELF,​ACTUAL>,​ACTUAL extends CharSequence>
        Overrides:
        usingComparator in class AbstractAssert<SELF extends AbstractCharSequenceAssert<SELF,​ACTUAL>,​ACTUAL extends CharSequence>
        Parameters:
        customComparator - the comparator to use for the incoming assertion checks.
        customComparatorDescription - comparator description to be used in assertion error messages
        Returns:
        this assertion object.
      • inHexadecimal

        public SELF inHexadecimal()
        Description copied from class: AbstractAssert
        Use hexadecimal object representation instead of standard representation in error messages.

        It can be useful when comparing UNICODE characters - many unicode chars have duplicate characters assigned, it is thus impossible to find differences from the standard error message:

        With standard message:

         assertThat("µµµ").contains("μμμ");
        
         java.lang.AssertionError:
         Expecting:
           <"µµµ">
         to contain:
           <"μμμ">
        With Hexadecimal message:
         assertThat("µµµ").inHexadecimal().contains("μμμ");
        
         java.lang.AssertionError:
         Expecting:
           <"['00B5', '00B5', '00B5']">
         to contain:
           <"['03BC', '03BC', '03BC']">
        Overrides:
        inHexadecimal in class AbstractAssert<SELF extends AbstractCharSequenceAssert<SELF,​ACTUAL>,​ACTUAL extends CharSequence>
        Returns:
        this assertion object.
      • inUnicode

         java.lang.AssertionError:

        Verifies that the actual CharSequence is equal to the given one, ignoring whitespace differences

        Examples :

         // assertions will pass
         assertThat("Game of Thrones").isEqualToIgnoringWhitespace("Game   of   Thrones")
                                      .isEqualToIgnoringWhitespace("  Game of   Thrones  ")

         // assertion will fail
         assertThat("Game of Thrones").isEqualToIgnoringWhitespace("Game OF Thrones");

        This assertion behavior has changed in 2.8.0 to really ignore all whitespaces, the old behaviour has been kept in the better named isEqualToNormalizingWhitespace(CharSequence).

        public SELF isEqualToNormalizingWhitespace​(CharSequence expected)
