Hello,

I would like to save the model comparison to be able to reopen it later.

Is there a way to reopen the model comparison whether with the comparison editor or an other editor ?

Thank you,
Pauline

Hi Pauline,

the result of a comparison is a plain EMF model, so serializing and loading it from a file should be no problem. You could then load the comparison model later, create a ComparisonEditorInput and open the UI to show the comparison (see also https://wiki.eclipse.org/EMF_Compare/How_To_Open_Compare_Dialog_With_Comparison).

However, keep in mind that the comparison model is not self-contained but references the compared models to point to the changed elements, the changed values, etc. Thus, the comparison model really only makes sense together with exactly the compared models. Just storing the comparison will hence not be enough.

Hope that helps!

Best wishes,

Philip

Hi Philip,

Thank you for your quick answer. It's help me, since we need compared models to interpret the comparison model, so save it is not really useful I can just do the comparison again.

Best regards,
Pauline
