This window displays the two repositories selected for comparison and provides tools for analyzing the comparison.
In the Object Repository Manager, select Tools > Object Repository Comparison Tool.
The repository panes display a hierarchical view of the objects in the object repositories being compared. The differences and similarities between objects in the two panes are indicated by colored text and background colors for each object.
Differences can also be identified by the icons displayed to the left of the objects in the object repository panes, as follows:
The number of objects that are unique to the first file.
The number of objects that are unique to the second file.
The number of objects in the first and second file that are not identical, but partially match.
While in Synchronized Nodes mode, when you select an object in one object repository pane, the corresponding object in the other file hierarchy is located and highlighted. You can press the Ctrl button when you select an object to highlight only the selected object without highlighting the corresponding object in the other file.
When you select an object in an object repository pane, its properties and values are displayed in the respective Test object details area at the bottom of the pane.
When you position your cursor over an icon to the left of an object in an object repository pane, the comparison details are displayed as a tooltip, for example, Partial match, or Unique to second file.
