All the basic assertions discussed above are actually defined in `Test::Unit::Assertions`. The class `ActiveSupport::TestCase` which we have been using in our unit and functional tests extends `Test::Unit::TestCase`, allowing
us to use all of the basic assertions in our tests.
+Ruby 1.9 introduced MiniTest, an updated version of Test::Unit which provides a backwards compatible API for Test::Unit. You could also used MiniTest in Ruby 1.8 by installing the `minitest` gem.
