Assert boolean could be replaced with assert equality

Reports calls to assertTrue() and assertFalse() that can be replaced with assert equality functions.

assertEquals(), assertSame(), and their negating counterparts (-Not-) provide more informative messages on failure.


assertTrue(a == b)

After the quick-fix is applied:

assertEquals(a, b)
