Is there a way to compare two source files? At the moment I am copying them into Websphere and doing it there.

Hello Rich,

Is there a way to compare two source files? At the moment I am
copying them into Websphere and doing it there.


Select the two files in the project view and invoke "Compare two files" action
from the context menu.

CTRL-click both of them in project view, right click and select compare two files (near bottom).

other solutions
- compare using the clipboad : copy one of the file in clipboad, open the other one and right click > compare with clipboard
- use the CompareDirectory plugin : much more powerful, will diff entire directories, including jars/zips

Don't know why I didn't see that. Thanks much.
