Fit - Row Fixture

Fitnesse Architecture


RowFixture tests dynamic lists of objects. It will compare the expected list (FitNesse table) with the actual result (from fixture code) and report any additional or missing items.

similar to:


  • The first row of the table is the fixture class name.
  • The second row describes the structure of objects in the list (the properties or methods that you want to verify).
  • All rows after that describe expected objects in the array.


The fixture class should extend fit.RowFixture and override the following two methods:

  • getTargetClass — returns the Type or Class object representing the type of objects contained in the array.
  • query — returns the actual array of objects to be verified.


  • Row table
