I've inherited a production application that is running as an unexploded war file. The size of it, is 6,790k.
On the same server, different folder, I have the war file at 6,998k.
Finally, building HEAD produces a war file of 6,787k.
I'm not so much concerned with WAR #2. I need to know what is in that 'production' version of th WAR, or rather, how it differs from what HEAD contains.
Is there a tool that I can run against class files that does a 'diff'? I know I can use a tool like WinMerge to diff whole directories of text files (such as JSP, CSS, XML, etc). I'm platform agnostic, any tool will do.
I suppose I could just decompile all classes down to *.java, and then diff those. Was hoping to avoid it.
