Comparing versions of elements

If you use ClearCase® for source control management, you can compare an element with its previous version to determine whether to check in your changes.

For scripts, the main Java file is compared with the previous version.

For scripts that are checked out, the current editable version is compared with the latest checked in version.

For scripts that are not checked out, the current version is compared with the previous version.

Functional Tester uses the ClearCase Diff Merge tool to compare files. For information about the ClearCase Diff Merge tool, see the ClearCase Help.

From the Functional Tester Show History View, you can compare any version of an element to any other version. For information, see Displaying the History of an Element.
