I tried to compare two simple identical models, having simply modified the order of some elements.
The elements are matched, however the result contains differences of the kind "MOVE".
I've checked the metamodel, to ensure that the corresponding EReference has its ordered property set to "false" and it is the case.
With EMF Compare 1.2 I did not have this problem.
Is there something I have forgotten to do to consider the order of the elements only when the EReference is ordered ?
We detect "move" differences on features that match one of the following:
The feature is marked as "ordered", or
The feature is a containmnent reference.
My guess is that you are in the second case, and have an "unordered" containment reference. There is no way (yet) to configure this behavior except when launching comparisons through code (i.e. not through the default "compare With" actions of Eclipse). If you are launching your comparisons through code, the behavior to customize is the Feature Filter.
