Follow-up to:

The assertEquals() test method does not check that the types of the expected and actual values match. This can hide subtle bugs especially when the values are falsey.


  • Switch to using assertSame() when the type of the value in the assertion is important
  • Replace overall usage of assertEquals() with type-strict assertion methods, with the aim of potentially removing its usage altogether
