Is there anyway to assert that,

actual int value = expected int value not equal to 0

Something like,

Assert.assertEquals(length, 0);
  • can you please give some example? Feb 24, 2016 at 12:05
  • Are you referring to this: Assert.assertTrue(actIntValue==expIntValue && expIntValue > 0); Mar 25, 2016 at 14:11
  • Are you trying to check two things? That actual value = expected value and that actual value <> 0?

public static void assertEquals(int actual,
                                int expected,
                                java.lang.String message)

Asserts that two ints are equal. If they are not, an AssertionFailedError, with the given message, is thrown. Parameters: actual - the actual value expected - the expected value message - the assertion error message


The TestNG Assert documentation describes a function assertNotEquals

Assert.assertNotEquals(length, 0);

This does what you want I guess, if not you can also check with assertEquals with some extra code.

Pseudo code:

result = false
if (length == 0 ) {
  result = true
Assert.assertEquals(result, false)

I would use assertThat instead of simple assertEquals or assertNotEquals for the reasons described on Stackoverflow:

assertThat(actual, is(not(equalTo(expected)));
assertThat(actual, is(not(equalTo(0)));

Try to use assertTrue in TestNG.

Assert.assertTrue(length > 0);
