getter/setter testers not working for getter/setter making defensive copy of array in version 0.7.5 #212

import java.util.Arrays;

public class AAA {
	private BBB[]  bbb = new BBB[] { new BBB(), new BBB() };
	public BBB[] getBbb() {
		return bbb == null ? null : Arrays.copyOf(bbb, bbb.length);
	public void setBbb(BBB[] bbb) {
		this.bbb = (bbb == null) ? null : Arrays.copyOf(bbb, bbb.length);
public class BBB { }

The getter/setter methods in above code making defensive copies for field of array type are unable to pass the following test.


It looks like the cause is that Objects.equals(,) instead of Objects.deepEquals(,) is used in SetterAssertions class to compare values but the former doesn't seem to work for array copies. Same issue is with GetterAssertions

public class SetterAssertions {
    public void willSetValueOnField(final Method setter, final Field field, final Object expectedValue) {
        try {
            setter.invoke(objectUnderAssert, expectedValue);
            final Object value = FieldUtils.getValue(objectUnderAssert, field);
            final boolean result = Objects.equals(value, expectedValue);

            checkResult(result, new SetterAssertionError(classUnderTest, field, expectedValue, value));
        } catch (IllegalAccessException | InvocationTargetException e) {
            throw new GetOrSetValueException(field.getName(), classUnderTest, e);
