I am currently running eclipse 3.2.2 Build ID - M20070212-1330. While comparing two JAVA files using the inbuilt eclipse file comparator, I observe that the tool, does not treat newline character as a whitespace character. Due to this reason

Object obj = new Object();

and

Object obj =
new Object();

gets treated as two different lines, which they are not. I have enabled "Ignore White space" option under Window > Preferences > General > Compare/Patch > General (Tab). Inspite of this, eclipse does not treat newline as a whitespace. Any suggestions or help ?

I can't see a newline in your example. Having said that it also works
for newlines for me (3.6.1 and 3.7 M3).

I'm on 4.2.1.v20120814 and it does not work. Is it a regression?

I have also seen quite a few bug reports not marked as resolved that were reported before the date of the OP's post:

"It" does work. Note that the original question was about Java compare
and not text compare and Java compare does ignore line delimiters in its
structure comparison / view. Text compare never considered line
delimiters as white space.
