Hello Stefan,

In the Oxygen Eclipse Plugin we do not include the "Content Compare Feature with the Author View" or any other Diff support, this features are available only in the Oxygen Standalone distribution only.

You can find more details in our feature matrix:

Hi Stefan,

Right now this feature cannot be included in the Oxygen Eclipse plugin. It si a different implementation for Eclipse. I will add an issue on our issue tracker to add this support in a future version, and we will notify you when it will be available.
What is you use case, do you want to compare two/three XML file in the Author mode? Or you want to compare two/three directories and see the changes from the files in the Author mode?

Octavian

Hi Octavian,

Our usecase would be comparing two xml files in the author mode. We integrated the oxygen Author in our CMS System so we do not have the need for comparing directories.

Is there a change to vote for Issues? Or are they completely internal?

Hello Stefan,

Thanks for your interest.
We implemented a visual compare using Oxygen XML Web Author, that can be integrated in the Eclipse browser.
You can find more details about the comparison tool on our website:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/xml_web_autho ... rison_Tool
and in the user manual:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... -tool.html

We intend to implement also the compare support in Oxygen XML Editor Eclipse plugin. We added this issue on our roadmap to be implemented for Oxygen XML Editor 22.0 or 22.1.

Best Regards,
Octavian

Hello Octavian,

thank you for the reply and the idea of integrating the Oxygen Web Editor.

But using the Web Editor for DIFFs only would cause another licence to order. Isn't is?
Or is there another way integrating this?

When will the Version 22 or 22.1 be released?

Best Regards
Stefan

Hello Stefan,

Yes, if you will use the Web Editor for DIFFs you will need another licence. If you are interested in this solution you can send an email on our support.
The version 22.0 of the Oxygen XML Editor is scheduled to be released in February 2020, and version 22.1 probably few months later.

Hello Stefan,

We just released version 22.1 of Oxygen XML Editor. Please note that the Oxygen Eclipse plugin now provides support to compare XML documents in the visual Author mode.

Hi Octavian,

Is there a documentation on how to use the Diff Tool from within an Eclipse based CMS ... having two files to compare and show in the author mode of the Diff

Thanks!

Hello Stefan,

The comparison in Eclipse should start automatically in Author mode for any XML document that has a CSS associated.
You need to make sure that the "Enable file comparison in Author mode" option from the Preferences > Oxygen XML Editor Eclipse plugin > DIFF option page is set.
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... ff-EC.html

You can find some details in our user manual about the Diff support in Eclipse:
https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/ ... rison.html

If the comparison support does not work, please contact us on our support email address (support at oxygenxml dot com) to discuss this in detail.

Octavian

Hi Octavian,

my question is more how to implement the diff in general. How do I call the diff from an CMS integration. How do I programatically trigger the diff and open the DIFF Dialog without opening the editor.

Hi Stefan,

We integrated our diff in the Eclipse comparison support. You need to trigger the eclipse comparison support.
I think a solution is something like this:
https://wiki.eclipse.org/FAQ_How_do_I_c ... _editor%3F
But you need to make sure that you set the "xml" type in the CompareItem (in case the file is an XML), by overwriting the "org.eclipse.compare.ITypedElement.getType()" method.

Do you use the standard Eclipse comparison from your CMS? If yes, maybe you can tell me how do you use it, so I can check if our comparison support should be started automatically .

Octavian
