Eclipse API comparison tool [message #672401] Fri, 20 May 2011 22:27 Go to next message

I would like to use API comparison outside eclipse in a build environment. Is this possible? If so, what are the prereq jars and APIs I can use? Any help is very much appreciated.

The task I wish to accomplish is to compare two jars under different versions and make sure the package versions comply with the OSGi versioning best practices. For example, the package major version has changed if there are API breaking changes.


Thanks in advance!

You can use an ant task to do this. Check the api tools ant tasks documentation.

PDE guys should have more details. Copying the question there.

Posted a message in PDE but got no response. Anyone knows a better communication channel.
Pretty urgent question.
Thanks

Maybe one of the API Tools Ant tasks can do this. Take a look at the
'API Tools Ant Tasks' reference documentation in the 'Plug-in
Development Environment Guide'.
