Object Differences while comparing Object Repositories
The Comparison Tool automatically identifies objects during the comparison process by classifying them into either of the following types:
1) Identical: These are the objects, which appear in both object repository files. There is no difference in their name or in their properties.
2) Matching description, different name: These are the objects, which appear in both object repository files having different names, but the same description properties and values.
3) Similar description: These are the objects, which appear in both object repository files having similar, but not identical, description properties and values.
One of the objects always has a subset of the properties set of the other object. This means that it is likely to be a less detailed
description of the same object. For example, an object named Button_1 in the second object repository has the same description properties and values as an object named Button_1 in the first object repository, but also has additional properties and values.
Objects, which do not have a description, such as Page, or Browser objects, are compared by name only. If the same object is contained in both the object repositories but with different names, they will be shown in the object repositories as two separate objects.
4) Unique to first file, or Unique to second file: These are the objects, which appear in only one of the object repository files.
