I have to write a component, which basically compare the values in two similar (nested) objects to generate some kind of reports.
Any thought how effectively it could be done?
Thanks in advance

Umh, compare them, generate your report. Aside from that we'd really need some more information.
Comparing complex object graphs could be a very fun task, but is a bit vague. Also, are we dealig with graphs, or just nested objects (container style?).
I agree. Here's the link:
