NAME

Test::JSON - Test JSON data

CONTENTS

VERSION

Version 0.11

SYNOPSIS



 use Test::JSON;

 is_valid_json $json,                 ... json is well formed;
 is_json       $json, $expected_json, ... and it matches what we expected;



EXPORT

o is_valid_json
o is_json

DESCRIPTION

JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) is a lightweight data interchange format. Test::JSON makes it easy to verify that you have built valid JSON and that it matches your expected output.

See <http://www.json.org/> for more information.

TESTS

    is_valid_json



 is_valid_json $json, ... json is well formed;



Test passes if the string passed is valid JSON.

    is_json



 is_json $json, $expected_json, ... and it matches what we expected;



Test passes if the two JSON strings are valid JSON and evaluate to the same data structure.

Test::Differences is used to provide easy diagnostics of why the JSON structures did not match. For example:



   Failed test ... and identical JSON should match
   in t/10testjson.t at line 14.
