I am trying to compare two text (read from a file, perform some manipulation on the text without saving it. so I store the text in two String). now I extend the compareeditorinput

public class MyCompare extends CompareEditorInput {

private DiffNode diffNode;
private String text1;
private String text2;

public MyCompare (CompareConfiguration configuraion, String orig, String current) {



protected Object prepareInput(IProgressMonitor monitor)
throws InvocationTargetException, InterruptedException {
// TODO Auto-generated method stub

CompareItem left = new CompareItem(text1);
CompareItem right = new CompareItem(text2);

diffNode= new DiffNode(left, right);
return diffNode;


when I call
CompareUI.openCompareDialog(new MyCompare(configuration, ((MyEditor) editorPart).originalText(), ((MyEditor) editorPart).currentConverted()) );

to show the difference, it shows the difference line by line. ie

line1 test_line
line2 line1
line3 line2

it's going to show all lines are different, not treating the lines as a block. Please let me know where I am doing wrong. thx
