Iterables.assertContainsExactly should not throw ex. if 'actual' and 'values' are empty #124

org.fest.assertions.internal.Iterables.assertContainsExactly(AssertionInfo info, Iterable<?> actual, Object[] values)

calls checkIsNotNullAndNotEmpty(values) and throws an IllegalArgumentException with message "The array of values to look for should not be empty" EVEN if values AND actual are empty.

But I would expect that it returns successfully.

I agree, accepting empty values makes sense.

Thanks for reporting this, we will fix it in the 2.0 version.

same for org.fest.assertions.internal.Maps.assertContains ...

... and probably some more assertion methods.
