Comparing resources with repository versions
To compare Workbench resources with those in the repository:
- Select a resource in one of the navigation views.
- From the resource's pop-up menu, select one of the following menu items:
- Compare With > Latest From <Branch Name> or <Version>-
Compare the Workbench resource with the latest resources currently committed
to the branch that the local project is shared with or if the local project
is checked out as a version then compare against the version. A compare
editor will be opened. This editor will display a tree of all resource
differences between the workspace resource and the latest resources in
- Compare With > Another Branch or Version - Compare the Workbench
resource with a specific version or branch that you select in the repository.
A compare editor will be opened. The editor will display a tree of all
resource differences between the workspace resource and the resources
in the specified version or branch.
- Compare With > History... - (available only on a file) Compare
the Workbench file with another revision of the file. Based on your preference
settings, either the History view or a dialog will open. The History view (or dialog)
will contain a table of all available revisions
of the selected file. Selecting one of the revisions will show the differences
between the workspace revision and the selected revision.
Tip: When comparing with a branch or version, you can specify a particular
date instead of a version or branch tag. This can be done by right clicking
on the Dates category in the tag selection list and choosing
Add Date. A Date Tag dialog is displayed that allows you to
specify a date and optionally a time. After you click Ok, the
date tag will appear in the tag selection list.
