Is there an Open source tool to compare two different Unix environments?
Posted on 2004-09-30
My client deployed a Java-based application last week to production (and related libraries such as Oracle, ect.). Beforehand, I was told that the production environment was set up identical to the test one. It turned out that several jar files were missing, and that permissions were different on certain directories, and the profiles were slightly different. Is there a tool available that can evaluate two different environments and compare not only directory structures, but also look for differences between the jars, differences between permissions, and differences in profiles, and so on?
