Summary0000137: Patch merger

Use or to implement a merger which uses patch in the following way:

  • There is a directory .metadata/.plugins/org.nasdanika.codegen/patch in the project which contains generated files.
  • When merge method is invoked it:
    • Computes a patch from the old generated code to the workspace copy.
    • Applies the patch to the new generated code.

The patch merger may have a protected method which may be overridden by subclasses to validate patched content, e.g. for XML - try to parse patched XML, for JavaScript - the same - try to parse using Nashorn or something else. If validation fails - maybe create several files old and new and output warning that manual merge is required.

Add java-diff-utils and/or diff-match-patch to Maven OGSi for this.

XML patch (e.g. plugin.xml) would require a different approach - something like XPath expressions and operation - replace, add-child, add/set-attribute, ... May require if-else logic depending of whether something is present.
