PHPUnit assertNotSame() Function

  • Last Updated : 07 Aug, 2020

The assertNotSame() function is a builtin function in PHPUnit and is used to assert the actually obtained value to be not-same to the expected value. This assertion will return true in the case if the expected value is not-same to actual value else returns false. In case of true the asserted test case got passed else test case got failed.

Syntax:

assertNotSame( mixed $expected, mixed $actual, string $message = '' )

Parameters: This function accepts three parameters as shown in the above syntax. The parameters are described below:

  • $expected: This parameter is of any type which represents the expected data.
  • $actual: This parameter is of any type which represents the actual data.
  • $message: This parameter takes a string value. When the test case got failed this string message got displayed as an error message.

Below examples illustrate the assertNotSame() function in PHPUnit:

Example 1:



PHP




<?php 
use PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase; 
    
class GeeksPhpunitTestCase extends TestCase 
    public function testNegativeForassertNotSame()
          
    {
     $expected = "(108) mango";    
     $actual = "(108) mango";
        // Assert function to test whether expected
        // value is same as actual value or not
        $this->assertNotSame(
            $expected,
            $actual,
            "actual value is same to expected"
        );
          
    }
   
 
?> 

Output:

PHPUnit 8.5.8 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.

     $actual = "(108) mango";
        // Assert function to test whether expected
        // value is same as actual value or not
        $this->assertNotSame(
            $expected,
            $actual,
            "actual value is same to expected"
        );
