I am trying to compare my working fmb file with the SVN checked-in file. I did the setup in SVN tortoise client to call formstool. The setup is as follow:
C:\Program Files\ORCL Toolbox\FormsTool V2.0\FormsTool.exe /API=10gR2 /homes="F:\DevSuiteHome_1\bin" /compare /module1=%BASE /module2=%MINE
When I try to do "diff with previous revision", svn calls the formtool but does not pass the file names(BASE/MINE). What am I missing? Please help.
Also, can I use the formstool within SVN to merge the changes from another revision to my working copy? Please advise.
FormsTool does not belong to Oracle. I think you might be in the wrong place. Try here:
As for the part that does belong to Oracle (your DevSuiteHome), I can say that we would not support you accessing it via a mapped drive. This might actually be part of your problem.
First try if this call works, without using API or HOME parameters, attention to quotes at "%base" and "%mine"
"C:\Program Files\ORCL Toolbox\FormsTool V2.0\FormsTool.exe" /COMPARE /MODULE1="%base" /MODULE2="%mine" /PROP="All Properties"
