Comare Differences in Libraries and Snyc them

Posted on 2003-03-22

Last Modified: 2012-05-04
I have multiple libraries (eg. test vs. production vs. customer) and I need compare libraries against the newest production library, find the differences and sync the older versions with the new one.  I know of now way to do this within the standard AS400 frameword (I'm very new to AS400 so forgive my ignorance).  Is there a standard way to accomplish this (like with WinSQL) or another 3rd party tool that can do this for me.  RIght now, it's very labor intensive and error prone and I would love to automate it somehow.  Any and all suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Bill

Hello wgrmba,

There are, as far as I know, 2 options.

Option 1:
Use te standard CMPLIB command that should be available in the TAATOOLS (for detail info see http://www.taatool.com/document/L_cmplib.htm)

Option 2:
Download the PCMPLIB tool from http://www.prosperosoftware.co.uk/software/as400/util/psputildoc.zip see detailed info on http://www.prosperosoftware.co.uk/software/as400/util/pcmplib.html

Have fun !!!!

Hey Bill,
Do you need to compare on the source level or the compiled objects level?

or both :-( ?

Do you need to find out if your compiled objects match the sources?
