Hi ,

I have the following situation regarding merging. Hope I will find an answer here.

I am using CVS (in JDeveloper and in Windows). I have a HEAD and a BRANCH. How do I merge the BRANCH in the HEAD? I don't know how many files were changed in the BRANCH.

You check out a copy of the HEAD, then run comparisons against a copy of the branch. Merging can be a real pain if there are conflicts.

I don't know if JDeveloper has very much in the way of help for merging. Eclipse does, though.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
