the date issue when opening the Merge Editor for a source is a little bit
problematic. There is an option when you open the Merge Editor "Consider
date". With this option you can see the dates of the source statements in
the Merge Editor. Now when you merge the changes to the target source and
save them the dates will not be set to the current date. They stay as they
are. The problem is, that when you choose this option the dates will be part
of the comparisons and it can occur that the Merge Editor marks lines as
changed although the source statement has not been changed. This is a known
limitation. The iSphere Compare/Merge Editor uses in the background the
Build In Compare/Merge Editor of Eclipse. This one has built for comparing
sources in PC file systems and not for sources stored in IBM i source
physical files. To fix this would mean to completely build our own
Compare/Merge Editor without using the Build In Compare/Merge Editor of
Eclipse and this is definitely to much work. Sorry.

Betreff: [WDSCI-L] iSphere Compare/Merge Editor question and fix request

I am using the iSphere plugin for RDi 9.0.1 and I like it. Works well to
tell me what is different between sources and lets me incorporate our
company changes into a source delivered by a provider.

My concern is that when I apply changes, and save my source, all the lines
in the target source show today as the last change date. It blows away any
and all dates that may exist. This is less than ideal.

Is there a setting I have missed to tell iSphere how I want it to behave,
or can this be fixed? I have looked for any settings to control the
Compare/Merge Editor and fail to see any in the iSphere preferences.

Thank you for providing this utility. I want to help make it better.
