Comparing int[] arrays in 4.1

Comparing int[] arrays in 4.1

Comparing int[] arrays in 4.1

I want to write code like this:


int[] expected = new int[]{1, 2, 3};
int[] actual = testObject.getArray();
assertEquals(expected, actual);

But I've discovered that if you pass assertEquals an array of primitives, it ignores the array part and just compares the references using Object.equals().  I could resolve the problem by using Integer[] arrays, or List<Integer>s, but I'd really like just to use a normal int[].  Is there a way to make it work in vanilla jUnit?

Thanks in advance,
