Text Compare editor.
To view and fix conflicts:
  • Click Show ancestory to show the ancestory pane, which shows the ancestory version of the compared versions if detected. This button is operable only for three-way comparison.
  • Click Toggle comparison mode to toggle between two-way (ignoring the ancestor version) and three-way comparison.
  • Click the Copy all button to copy all the shown changes, or the Copy selected button to copy the selected change, from right to left.
  • Click Browse down or Browse up to navigate through the differences.
  • Click Browse down or Browse up to navigate through the changes.
  • You can also edit text directly in the left pane to make changes to the version of the current branch.
Warning: After fixing conflicts in a conflicted editor, be sure to save your changes.

Note that if a centralized Repository item - a routine, a bean, a Job script, or a SQL script defined in the Repository for example - is called in a Job, fixing conflicts for the Repository item in the Text Compare editor does not automatically update the corresponding Job. When you open the Job in the Integration perspective, you will be asked whether to update your Job.
