Method Detail

_dont_implement_Matcher___instead_extend_BaseMatcher_

@Deprecated
public final void _dont_implement_Matcher___instead_extend_BaseMatcher_()
Deprecated. 

Description copied from interface: Matcher
This method simply acts a friendly reminder not to implement Matcher directly and instead extend BaseMatcher. It's easy to ignore JavaDoc, but a bit harder to ignore compile errors .

Specified by:
_dont_implement_Matcher___instead_extend_BaseMatcher_ in interface Matcher<T>
See Also:
Matcher._dont_implement_Matcher___instead_extend_BaseMatcher_()

describeMismatch

public void describeMismatch(Object item,
                             Description description)
Description copied from interface: Matcher
Generate a description of why the matcher has not accepted the item. The description will be part of a larger description of why a matching failed, so it should be concise. This method assumes that matches(item) is false, but will not check this.

Specified by:
describeMismatch in interface Matcher<T>
Parameters:
item - The item that the Matcher has rejected.
description - The description to be built or appended to.

toString

public String toString()
Overrides:
toString in class Object
