[API Comparator] Any updates

Hello,

I like API Comparator very much, it really helps knowing the changes between
different versions of sw. It is extremely helpfull, to document updates in
my own sw APIs.

The problem I currently have is that I can't see the changes for modified
elements easily, what I currently do, is that I take API Comparator's report
and use cvs to know what has changed.

Is there a way to see this info from API Comparator?

Best Regards,
Mamado

Can you provide more suggestions? I'm just not sure what about info i'll
must to show?
For example, taking version of JAR file from CVS and compare it with other
version in CVS?

Thanks!

Hello Alexey,

I am sorry if my description was not clear.

I meant that, from API Comparator, I can see that a method has been modified
but I don't see what has changed (new argument, arg type, ...) so I have
to get the file in question and diff in cvs to see what has changed (which
is a great help over diffing all files).

I think that since API Comparator detected that there is a change, then the
information of what has changed is in there, but I couldn't see it on the
first look.

Is there a way to see what has been modified for the methods/fields marked
as modified. Some before/after view?

Best Regards,
Mohamed
