Image Compare sample

1. Running the sample from the Command-line

It is possible to compare two DocBook files using the command line tool from this directory as follows, where '\''^' is a line continuation character.

java -jar ../../deltaxml-docbook.jar compare \
                articleA/docbook-article-A-db5.xml  articleB/docbook-article-B-db5.xml docbook-article-revision.xml \
                indent=yes image-compare=true show-image-changes-at-mediaobject-level=true

The docbook-article-revision.xml file contains the result, which shows cases where images have changed as image-compare is set to true. In order to make it more obvious what has changed show-image-changes-at-mediaobject-level has also been set to true.

Other parameters are available as discussed in the User Guide and summarised by the following command

java -jar ../../deltaxml-docbook.jar describe

For an example of using the java/.Net API to call the compare see the FileCompare sample.
