Build Status Latest recheck-xml on Maven Central license PRs welcome code with hearth by retest

recheck for XML. Replace manual asserts and check everything at once.


  • Easy creation and maintenance of checks for XML.
  • Semantic comparison of contents.
  • Easily ignore formatting, volatile elements, attributes or sections.
  • One-click maintenance to update tests with intended changes.
  • No unexpected changes go unnoticed.


Instead of manually defining individual aspects that you want to check, check everything at once. So instead of writing lots of assert-statements (and still not have complete checks), write a single re.check. This saves a lot of effort when creating the tests. And makes sure to not miss unexpected changes.

And even better: using the retest GUI (or the soon to come open source CLI), you can easily accept those changes with a single click (patent pending). This also saves a lot of time during maintenance. Any regular changing aspects or elements can easily be ignored.
