JDiff is a Javadoc doclet which generates an HTML report of all the packages, classes, constructors, methods, and fields which have been removed, added or changed in any way, including their documentation, when two APIs are compared. This is very useful for describing exactly what has changed between two releases of a product. Only the API (Application Programming Interface) of each version is compared. It does not compare what the source code does when executed.
It's great for reporting what has changed between two releases of your product! You can download the latest version from here, with a module name of
jdiff. There is also an article originally published Java Developers Journal.
Note: to eliminate the annoying
register.combanner, after you choose a report from below, simply click on "No Frames" or "Frames".
