Subversion > Compare with Branch fails

I wanted to see if anyone else can reproduce this prior to attempting to create a JIRA issue.

1. Open any file (.java or .jsp for example) that exists under Subversion control in two or more branches.
2. Right click file in editor and choose Subversion > Compare with Branch...
3. Select a branch where you know the file to compare against exists.

Do you see the diff screen? I do not.

I have IDEA 8.0 install side-by-side with IDEA 7.0.3. In 7.0.3 this function version works as expected.

System:
IDEA 8.0 Build #9013
Java 1.6.0_10
WinXP SP2 Intel Core2 Duo 4GB RAM

Hello Paul, I've checked "Compare with branch" and it works for me.
Please give me the details: how your branches are configured, what is the relative position of the file under branch, whether there are difference between files.
Thank you.

Hi,

I have this similar problem....

my svn repository is structured as such:

snv://server/myapp/trunk
snv://server/myapp/tags
snv://server/myapp/branches


my woking copy is synched to snv://server/myapp/trunk  and is at    /home/me/projects/myapp


when i select my working copy  /home/me/projects/myapp from project window and righ click and do "compare with branch"  and then select "trunk"  I see it processing but no diff window shows up.

I know that  I have lots of local non-commited changes   in   /home/me/projects/myapp

any ideas ?

thanks

Hello john,

What are you trying to do? "Compare with Branch" lets you compare your changes
with changes in a different branch, not in the same one. To see the list
of uncommitted changes, use the Changes toolwindow (Version Control | Show
Changes View).

That works for me. Thanks.

But fyi, I did with latest repository version and also use the compare with branch to select "trunk" and no change window poped up.
