Tip for a forgetful software developer

Lately, when writing JUnit tests I’ve been doing things like:

...
String result = some.method();
assertTrue("Expected " + expected + " but was " + result, result.equals(expected));
...

However, a similar result can be achieved with the semantically more accurate

...
assertEquals(expected, result);
...

This is even easier to type 🙂

I did know this, honest!
