PHPUnit | assertEquals() Function

The assertEquals() is a built in PHP function to test your php based features before deploying the application on your live application.

When a comparison fails PHPUnit creates textual representations of the input values and compares those. Due to that implementation a diff might show more problems than actually exist.

This only happens when using assertEquals() or other ‘weak’ comparison functions on arrays or objects.
