Developers who have worked on Oracle Configurator have always realised that there has been a requirement to understand the changes between existing repository models and the published version of those models in Oracle configurator.

There have unfortunately been no tools to identify such changes and to highlight them.

We had once hit a situation where our repository model was completely out of sync(corrupted) when compared to a published model. We needed to understand the exact changes(it would have been helpful to visually see the differences but unfortunately there was no mechanism to do so).

Desperation led to an invention and I ended up modifying the existing Model Report that Oracle provides.

This can be used to compare differences between two different models. These models could be both published models/repository model-published model/same model on two different instances(UAT and Prod).

Why did we modify the Model Report?






  • There was no existing tool to check changes that were made to a Model.
