JsonUnit Apache License 2 Build Status Maven Central

JsonUnit is a library that simplifies JSON comparison in tests.

APIs

There are several different APIs you can use. They all have more or less the same features, just the usage is slightly different.

AssertJ integration

This is brand new API which combines power of JsonUnit and AssertJ. If you are not sure, which API to use, pick this one.

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.assertj.JsonAssertions.assertThatJson;
import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.assertj.JsonAssertions.json;

...

// compares two JSON documents (note lenient parsing of expected value)
assertThatJson("{\"a\":1, \"b\":2}").isEqualTo("{b:2, a:1}");

// objects are automatically serialized before comparison
assertThatJson(jsonObject).isEqualTo("{\n\"test\": 1\n}");

// AssertJ map assertions (numbers are converted to BigDecimals)
assertThatJson("{\"a\":1}").isObject().containsEntry("a", BigDecimal.valueOf(1));

// Type placeholders
assertThatJson("{\"a\":1, \"b\": {\"c\" :3}}")
    .isObject().containsValue(json("{\"c\" :\"${json-unit.any-number}\"}"));

// AssertJ array assertion
assertThatJson("{\"a\":[{\"b\": 1}, {\"c\": 1}, {\"d\": 1}]}")
    .node("a").isArray().contains(json("{\"c\": 1}"));

// Can ignore array order
assertThatJson("{\"a\":[{\"b\": 1}, {\"c\": 1}, {\"d\": 1}]}")
    .when(Option.IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER).node("a").isArray()
    .isEqualTo(json("[{\"c\": 1}, {\"b\": 1} ,{\"d\": 1}]"));

// custom matcher
assertThatJson("{\"test\":-1}")
    .withConfiguration(c -> c.withMatcher("positive", greaterThan(valueOf(0))))
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\": \"${json-unit.matches:positive}\"}");

// and
assertThatJson("{\"test\":{\"a\":1, \"b\":2, \"c\":3}}").and(
    a -> a.node("test.a").isEqualTo(1),
    a -> a.node("test.b").isEqualTo(2)
);

// JsonPath support
assertThatJson(json)
    .inPath("$.store.book")
    .isArray()
    .contains(json(
        "            {\n" +
            "                \"category\": \"reference\",\n" +
            "                \"author\": \"Nigel Rees\",\n" +
            "                \"title\": \"Sayings of the Century\",\n" +
            "                \"price\": 8.96\n" +
            "            }"
    ));

JsonUnit tries to be clever when parsing the expected value. If the value can be parsed as valid JSON, it's parsed so. If it can't be parsed, it's considered to be just a string to be compared. It usually works, but it can lead to unexpected situations, usually with primitive values like numbers and booleans.

// This test does NOT pass. "1" is parsed as JSON containing number 1, actual value is a string.
assertThatJson("{\"id\":\"1\", \"children\":[{\"parentId\":\"1\"}]}")
    .inPath("children[*].parentId")
    .isArray()
    .containsOnly("1");

// You have to wrap the expected value by `JsonAssertions.value()`
// to prevent parsing
assertThatJson("{\"id\":\"1\", \"children\":[{\"parentId\":\"1\"}]}")
    .inPath("children[*].parentId")
    .isArray()
    .containsOnly(value("1"));

// "true" is valid JSON so it gets parsed to primitive `true`
// Have to wrap it to JsonAssertions.value() in order to make sure it's not parsed
assertThatJson("{\"root\":[\"true\"]}").node("root").isArray().containsExactly(value("true"));

On the other hand, if you want to make sure that the expected value is parsed as JSON, use JsonAssertions.json().

Kotlin support

Following Kotlin API is supported (notice different import)

// Kotlin
import net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.assertj.assertThatJson

assertThatJson("""{"root":{"a":1, "b": 2}}""") {
    isObject
    node("root.a").isEqualTo(1)
    node("root.b").isEqualTo(2)
}

To use AssertJ integration, import

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit-assertj</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

For more examples see the tests.

Hamcrests matchers

You use Hamcrest matchers in the following way

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.JsonMatchers.*;
import static org.junit.Assert.*;
import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.core.util.ResourceUtils.resource;
...

assertThat("{\"test\":1}", jsonEquals("{\"test\": 1}"));
assertThat("{\"test\":1}", jsonPartEquals("test", 1));
assertThat("{\"test\":[1, 2, 3]}", jsonPartEquals("test[0]", 1));

assertThat("{\"test\":{\"a\":1, \"b\":2, \"c\":3}}",
    jsonEquals("{\"test\":{\"b\":2}}").when(IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS));

// Can use other Hamcrest matchers too
assertThat("{\"test\":1}", jsonPartMatches("test", is(valueOf(1))))

assertThat("{\"test\":1}", jsonEquals(resource("test.json")));

To use import

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

For more examples see the tests.

Spring MVC assertions

JsonUnit supports Spring MVC test assertions. For example

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.spring.JsonUnitResultMatchers.json;
...

mockMvc.perform(get("/sample").andExpect(
    json().isEqualTo("{\"result\":{\"string\":\"stringValue\", \"array\":[1, 2, 3],\"decimal\":1.00001}}")
);
mockMvc.perform(get("/sample").andExpect(
    json().node("result.string2").isAbsent()
);
mockMvc.perform(get("/sample").andExpect(
    json().node("result.array").when(Option.IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER).isEqualTo(new int[]{3, 2, 1})
);
mockMvc.perform(get("/sample").andExpect(
    json().node("result.array").matches(everyItem(lessThanOrEqualTo(valueOf(4))))
);

Following Kotlin DSL si supported:

mockMvc.get(path).andExpect {
    jsonContent {
        node("root").isEqualTo(CORRECT_JSON)
    }
}

Inside jsonContent you have access to all AssertJ API capabilities as described here.

To use import

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit-spring</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

For more examples see the tests.

Spring WebTestClient

To integrate with Spring WebTest client do

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.spring.WebTestClientJsonMatcher.json;
...

client.get().uri(path).exchange().expectBody().consumeWith(
    json().isEqualTo("{\"result\":{\"string\":\"stringValue\", \"array\":[1, 2, 3],\"decimal\":1.00001}}")
);
client.get().uri(path).exchange().expectBody().consumeWith(
    json().node("result.string2").isAbsent()
);
client.get().uri(path).exchange().expectBody().consumeWith(
    json().node("result.array").when(Option.IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER).isEqualTo(new int[]{3, 2, 1})
);
client.get().uri(path).exchange().expectBody().consumeWith(
    json().node("result.array").matches(everyItem(lessThanOrEqualTo(valueOf(4))))
);

For Kotlin, you can use our bespoke DSL

import net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.spring.jsonContent
...
client.get().uri(path).exchange().expectBody()
    .jsonContent {
        isEqualTo(CORRECT_JSON)
    }

Import

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit-spring</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

Spring REST client assertions

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.spring.JsonUnitRequestMatchers.json;
...
mockServer.expect(requestTo(URI))
      .andExpect(json().isEqualTo(json))
      .andRespond(withSuccess(jsonResponse, MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_UTF8));

To use import

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit-spring</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

Vintage APIs

There are two API types that are still supported but not recommnded to use for new tests - Fluent assertions and Standard assert. They are documented here

Features

JsonUnit support all this features regardless of API you use.

JsonPath support

You can use JsonPath navigation together with JsonUnit. It has native support in AssertJ integration so you can do something like this:

// AssertJ style
assertThatJson(json)
    .inPath("$.store.book")
    .isArray()
    .contains(json(
        "            {\n" +
            "                \"category\": \"reference\",\n" +
            "                \"author\": \"Nigel Rees\",\n" +
            "                \"title\": \"Sayings of the Century\",\n" +
            "                \"price\": 8.96\n" +
            "            }"
    ));

For other API styles you have to first import JsonPath support module

<dependency>
    <groupId>net.javacrumbs.json-unit</groupId>
    <artifactId>json-unit-json-path</artifactId>
    <version>2.22.0</version>
    <scope>test</scope>
</dependency>

and then use instead of actual value

import static net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.jsonpath.JsonPathAdapter.inPath;

...
// Fluent assertions
assertThatJson(inPath(json, "$.store.book[*].author"))
    .when(Option.IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER)
    .isEqualTo("['J. R. R. Tolkien', 'Nigel Rees', 'Evelyn Waugh', 'Herman Melville']");

Ignoring values

Sometimes you need to ignore certain values when comparing. It is possible to use ${json-unit.ignore} or #{json-unit.ignore} placeholder like this

// AssertJ API
assertThatJson("{\"a\":1}")
    .isEqualTo(json("{\"a\":\"${json-unit.ignore}\"}"));

Please note that the assertion will fail if the test element is missing in the actual value.

Ignoring elements

If the element needs to be ignored completely you can use ${json-unit.ignore-element} placeholder.

// AssertJ API
assertThatJson("{\"root\":{\"test\":1, \"ignored\": null}}")
      .isEqualTo("{\"root\":{\"test\":1, \"ignored\": \"${json-unit.ignore-element}\"}}");

The assertion will not fail if the element is missing in the actual value.

Ignoring paths

whenIgnoringPaths configuration option makes JsonUnit ignore the specified paths in the actual value. If the path matches, it's completely ignored. It may be missing, null or have any value. Also when(paths(...), thenIgnore() can be used.

// AssertJ style
assertThatJson("{\"root\":{\"test\":1, \"ignored\": 1}}")
    .whenIgnoringPaths("root.ignored"))
    .isEqualTo("{\"root\":{\"test\":1}}");

// Hamcrest matcher
assertThat(
  "{\"root\":{\"test\":1, \"ignored\": 2}}",
  jsonEquals("{\"root\":{\"test\":1, \"ignored\": 1}}").whenIgnoringPaths("root.ignored")
);

Array index placeholder

assertThatJson("[{\"a\":1, \"b\":2},{\"a\":1, \"b\":3}]")
    .whenIgnoringPaths("[*].b")
    .isEqualTo("[{\"a\":1, \"b\":0},{\"a\":1, \"b\":0}]");

Please note that if you use JsonPath, you should start the path to be ignored by $ Also note that whenIgnoringPaths method supports full JsonPath syntax only in AssertJ API, all the other flavors support only exact path or array index placeholder as described above.

JsonPath with whenIgnoringPaths example:

// AssertJ API
assertThatJson("{\"fields\":[" +
        "{\"key\":1, \"name\":\"AA\"}," +
        "{\"key\":2, \"name\":\"AB\"}," +
        "{\"key\":3, \"name\":\"AC\"}" +
    "]}")
    .whenIgnoringPaths("$.fields[?(@.name=='AA')].key")
    .isEqualTo("{\"fields\":[" +
        "{\"key\":2, \"name\":\"AA\"}," +
        "{\"key\":2, \"name\":\"AB\"}," +
        "{\"key\":3, \"name\":\"AC\"}" +
    "]}");

Regular expressions

It is also possible to use regular expressions to compare string values

assertThatJson("{\"test\": \"ABCD\"}")
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\": \"${json-unit.regex}[A-Z]+\"}");

For matching just part of the string, you can use this (we have to escape twice, one for Java, once for JSON)

assertThatJson("{\"test\": \"This is some text followed by: ABCD, followed by this\"}")
            .isEqualTo("{\"test\": \"${json-unit.regex}^\\\\QThis is some text followed by: \\\\E[A-Z]+\\\\Q, followed by this\\\\E$\"}");

Since this is quite hard to write, you can implement an expression builder like this.

Type placeholders

If you want to assert just a type, but you do not care about the exact value, you can use any-* placeholder like this

assertThatJson("{\"test\":\"value\"}")
    .isEqualTo("{test:'${json-unit.any-string}'}");

assertThatJson("{\"test\":true}")
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":\"${json-unit.any-boolean}\"}");

assertThatJson("{\"test\":1.1}")
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":\"${json-unit.any-number}\"}");

You can also use hash instead of string #{json-unit.any-string} for example if you are using language with string interpolation like Kotlin.

Custom matchers

In some special cases you might want to use your own matcher in the expected document.

 assertThatJson("{\"test\":-1}")
             .withMatcher("positive", greaterThan(valueOf(0)))
             .isEqualTo("{\"test\": \"${json-unit.matches:positive}\"}");

In even more special cases, you might want to parametrize your matcher.

 Matcher<?> divisionMatcher = new DivisionMatcher();
 assertThatJson("{\"test\":5}")
    .withMatcher("isDivisibleBy", divisionMatcher)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\": \"${json-unit.matches:isDivisibleBy}3\"}");

 private static class DivisionMatcher extends BaseMatcher<Object> implements ParametrizedMatcher {
     private BigDecimal param;

     public boolean matches(Object item) {
         return ((BigDecimal)item).remainder(param).compareTo(ZERO) == 0;
     }

     public void describeTo(Description description) {
         description.appendValue(param);
     }

     @Override
     public void describeMismatch(Object item, Description description) {
         description.appendText("It is not divisible by ").appendValue(param);
     }

     public void setParameter(String parameter) {
         this.param = new BigDecimal(parameter);
     }
 }

Options

There are multiple options how you can configure the comparison

TREATING_NULL_AS_ABSENT - fields with null values are equivalent to absent fields. For example, this test passes

assertThatJson("{\"test\":{\"a\":1, \"b\": null}}")
    .when(TREATING_NULL_AS_ABSENT)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":{\"a\":1}}");

IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER - ignores order in arrays

assertThatJson("{\"test\":[1,2,3]}")
    .when(IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":[3,2,1]}");

IGNORING_EXTRA_ARRAY_ITEMS - ignores unexpected array items

assertThatJson("{\"test\":[1,2,3,4]}")
    .when(IGNORING_EXTRA_ARRAY_ITEMS)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":[1,2,3]}");


assertThatJson("{\"test\":[5,5,4,4,3,3,2,2,1,1]}")
    .when(IGNORING_EXTRA_ARRAY_ITEMS, IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":[1,2,3]}");

IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS - ignores extra fields in the compared value

assertThatJson("{\"test\":{\"a\":1, \"b\":2, \"c\":3}}")
    .when(IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":{\"b\":2}}");

IGNORE_VALUES - ignores values and compares only types

assertThatJson("{\"a\":2,\"b\":\"string2\"}")
    .when(paths("a", "b"), then(IGNORING_VALUES))
    .isEqualTo("{\"a\":1,\"b\":\"string\"}");

It is possible to combine options.

assertThatJson("{\"test\":[{\"key\":3},{\"key\":2, \"extraField\":2},{\"key\":1}]}")
    .when(IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS, IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER)
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":[{\"key\":1},{\"key\":2},{\"key\":3}]}");

In Hamcrest assertion you can set the option like this

assertThat("{\"test\":{\"a\":1, \"b\":2, \"c\":3}}",
    jsonEquals("{\"test\":{\"b\":2}}").when(IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS));

You can define options locally (for specific paths) by using when(path(...), then(...)):

// ignore array order for [*].a
// AssertJ
assertThatJson("{\"test\":{\"a\":1,\"b\":2,\"c\":3}}").when(paths("test.c"), then(IGNORING_VALUES))
    .isEqualTo("{\"test\":{\"a\":1,\"b\":2,\"c\":4}}");
// ignore array order everywhere but [*].b
assertThatJson("[{\"b\":[4,5,6]},{\"b\":[1,2,3]}]")
    .when(IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER)
    .when(path("[*].b"), thenNot(IGNORING_ARRAY_ORDER))
    .isEqualTo("[{\"b\":[1,2,3]},{\"b\":[4,5,6]}]");
// ignore extra fields in the object "a"
assertThatJson("{\"a\":{\"a1\":1,\"a2\":2},\"b\":{\"b1\":1,\"b2\":2}}")
    .when(path("a"), then(IGNORING_EXTRA_FIELDS))
    .isEqualTo("{\"a\":{\"a1\":1},\"b\":{\"b1\":1}}"))
// ignore extra array items in the array
assertThatJson("{\"a\":[1,2,3]}")
    .when(path("a"), then(IGNORING_EXTRA_ARRAY_ITEMS))
    .isEqualTo("{\"a\":[1,2]}");
// Hamcrest
assertThat("{\"test\":{\"a\":1,\"b\":2,\"c\":3}}",
    jsonEquals("{\"test\":{\"a\":1,\"b\":2,\"c\":4}}").when(path("test.c"), then(IGNORING_VALUES)));

Note that TREATING_NULL_AS_ABSENT and IGNORING_VALUES require exact paths to ignored fields:

// ignoring number and str
assertThatJson("{\"a\":2,\"b\":\"string2\"}")
    .when(paths("a", "b"), then(IGNORING_VALUES))
    .isEqualTo("{\"a\":1,\"b\":\"string\"}");
// treat null B as absent B
assertThatJson("{\"A\":1,\"B\":null}")
    .when(path("B"), then(TREATING_NULL_AS_ABSENT))
    .isEqualTo("{\"A\":1}");

All other options require paths to objects or arrays where values or order should be ignored.

Array indexing

You can use negative numbers to index arrays form the end

assertThatJson("{\"root\":{\"test\":[1,2,3]}}")
    .node("root.test[-1]").isEqualTo(3);

Numerical comparison

Numbers are by default compared in the following way:

  • If the type differs, the number is different. So 1 and 1.0 are different (int vs. float). This does not apply when Moshi is used since it parses all numbers as Doubles.
  • Floating number comparison is exact

You can change this behavior by setting tolerance. If you set tolerance to 0 two numbers are considered equal if they are equal mathematically even though they have different type (a.compareTo(b) == 0)).

assertThatJson("{\"test\":1.00}").node("test").withTolerance(0).isEqualTo(1);

If you set tolerance to non-zero value, the values are considered equal if abs(a-b) < tolerance.

assertThatJson("{\"test\":1.00001}").node("test").withTolerance(0.001).isEqualTo(1);

Or you can use Hamcrest matcher

import static java.math.BigDecimal.valueOf;
...
assertThatJson("{\"test\":1.10001}").node("test")
    .matches(closeTo(valueOf(1.1), valueOf(0.001)));

If you are interested why 1 and 1.0 are treated as different numbers please read this comment.

Escaping dots

Sometimes you have dots in JSON element names and you need to address those elements. It is possible to escape dots like this

assertThatJson("{\"name.with.dot\": \"value\"}").node("name\\.with\\.dot").isStringEqualTo("value");

Lenient parsing of expected value

Writing JSON string in Java is huge pain. JsonUnit parses expected values leniently so you do not have to quote keys and you can use single quotes instead of double quotes. Please note that the actual value being compared is parsed in strict mode.

assertThatJson("{\"a\":\"1\", \"b\":2}").isEqualTo("{b:2, a:'1'}");

Jackson Object Mapper customization

If you need to customize Jacson 2 Object Mapper, you can do using SPI. Implement net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.providers.Jackson2ObjectMapperProvider.

public class Java8ObjectMapperProvider implements Jackson2ObjectMapperProvider {
    private final ObjectMapper mapper;

    private final ObjectMapper lenientMapper;


    public Java8ObjectMapperProvider() {
        mapper = new ObjectMapper().registerModule(new JavaTimeModule());
        mapper.configure(SerializationFeature.WRITE_DATES_AS_TIMESTAMPS, false);

        lenientMapper = new ObjectMapper().registerModule(new JavaTimeModule());
        lenientMapper.configure(JsonParser.Feature.ALLOW_UNQUOTED_FIELD_NAMES, true);
        lenientMapper.configure(JsonParser.Feature.ALLOW_COMMENTS, true);
        lenientMapper.configure(JsonParser.Feature.ALLOW_SINGLE_QUOTES, true);
    }

    @Override
    public ObjectMapper getObjectMapper(boolean lenient) {
        return lenient ? lenientMapper : mapper;
    }
}

and register it in META-INF/services/net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.providers.Jackson2ObjectMapperProvider. See this example.

Logging

Although the differences are printed out by the assert statement, sometimes you use JsonUnit with other libraries like Jadler that do not print the differences between documents. In such case, you can switch on the logging. JsonUnit uses SLF4J. The only thing you need to do is to configure your logging framework to log net.javacrumbs.jsonunit.difference on DEBUG level.

Selecting underlying library

JsonUnit is trying to cleverly match which JSON library to use. In case you need to change the default behavior, you can use json-unit.libraries system property. For example -Djson-unit.libraries=jackson2,gson or System.setProperty("json-unit.libraries", "jackson2");. Supported values are gson, json.org, moshi, jackson2
