Hi Guys,

I am new to git.In the starting i was able to switch the branches without committing my changes in my current branch.

I don't know what happened but now when i try to switch branch,everytime i got the message that there are some changes to commit.first commit.

I don't want to commit everytime.

Please help.

If switching to another branch would need to change a file which is modified in your working tree
git (and egit) raises a checkout conflict in order to prevent that your local changes are overwritten.
If you want to keep the local changes you can either stash or commit them before switching
to the other branch. If you want to get rid of the local changes do a hard reset.
