Code Inspection: Assertion can be replaced with 'fail'

Reports the assertTrue()/assertFalse() calls with the false/true arguments in PHPUnit tests. Such usages can be replaced with fail() calls to indicate that a test is expected to fail.

In the following example, the false condition is provided for the assertTrue method to indicate that a test is expected to fail. After the quick-fix is applied, the more specific fail() method is used instead.

class Test extends \PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase { public function doTest() { $this->assertTrue(false, 'Message'); } }
class Test extends \PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase { public function doTest() { $this->fail('Message'); } }
