Does the pragmatic unit testing book cover matchers?

Hi Authors,
Does the book cover Hamcrest matchers extensively? I have found these very useful - lovely stuff...
These help me write better tests - more expressive - and succinct!
However, I have a nagging feeling - there is a lot more to it - would love to see
these treated at length ;-)

--- warm regards,
atul

Hi Atul,

There's a chapter on assertions in the book that covers a number of the core Hamcrest assertions. And I prefer Hamcrest assertions myself, so that's what you'll see throughout the book. (Just remember, since it's designed for newer JUnit testers, you're going to see more of key elements and what's important, not exhaustive coverage.)

I have one, perhaps two, examples where I introduce a custom matcher as well.

Regards,
Jeff
