About SiTreeDiff as Eclipse Plug-in

SiTreeDiff is a folder comparison tool, which is comes along with the SiDiff package. It makes it possible to compare two directory trees and allows synchronization of them in both directions. You can find more information about the included SiTreeDiff project at the SiTreeDiff project page.

This project is the first revision of SiTreeDiff as Eclipse Plug-in. It was newly developed and concepted as a hands-on training at the University Siegen by

under the supervision of

of the institute Praktische Informatik at the Universitšt Siegen.



In order to use SiTreeDiff as Eclipse Plug-in, you need the Eclipse IDE version 3.x. Furthermore, you need a decent Java runtime environment. At least JRE 1.5.0 is required. You can always download the latest Java 2 Plattform from the Sun Microsystems Java Plattform Site.




SiTreeDiff as Eclipse plug-in is work-in-progress, that says that this 1.0.0 release does not mark the end of development. Development will continue as part of the so called Programmierpraktikum. All computer science students of the University Siegen with a good knowledge of software development and Java programming are welcome to join the SiDiff/SiTreeDiff team. Contact Prof. Kelter if you're going to do the Programmierpraktikum during the next semester and are interested in working on SiDiff/SiTreeDiff.

Of course, we also welcome suggestions, bug reports and patches from other people. We are about to establish a mailing list and a bug tracking system for SiTreeDiff as Eclipse Plug-in, so stay tuned.

Thanks for your interest in SiTreeDiff's development.
