How to find the diff between two changesets

Aug 24, 2009 at 2:06 PM

I am back from summer holliday and obviously many were working here...
I am wondering how to find the difference, in the code, between two changesets
I have somehow customized my own version and I do not want to start from scratch

From team explorer if you are using it, you can view history of certain file and compare between changeset. I don't remember the steps but it starts with view history of file.

I guess same thing with SVN and visual SVN.

Tell me where is your changes resides exactly and I might be able to tell if these files we touched or not.

Generally none of ASP.NET MVC view and controller are touched. Just style sheet to fix an inssue with rich editor with Chrome and Safari.

Most changes where made into EF and LinqToSQL (namespace changes were made but that was in very earlier stages back at the end of April).

We also upgraded to Moq 3.x which means all tests where updated also this is back to April.

So let me know where are your changes resides and let me see if I can help

When I went on holiday, I was at this changeset : 19862  Jun 9
So I wanted to update all changes made since then

Tkanks again

OMG :o) Jun 9!

Well, It might take sometime to figure out changes. Have you tried the way I mentioned above?

Also can you specify where are your changes might resides, at least let me know the assemblies, and better classes. But Assemblies will be good too.

Hi Moses
Thank you for your help
I will try to update my code project by project

The main changes are in the core project

Did you touch something in the core project?

No you are on save side, Changeset 19862 is KiGG - 2.5 Preview. Have a look at the comment of subsequent changesets after that date.

After this changeset most changes was made for bug fixing and migration to DotNetOpenAuth.

I guess you are totally in safe side, if you just used your core.

Hi Moses
I don't know where to look
I am desperately getting HTTP 500 error whith this release

I don't know what I am missing
Any suggestion?

Do you mean with the release files without applying any updates from your side?!

Can you recompile in debug mode and try to debug to know exactly where it is being crashed!

I might need more inputs like if you are using EF, your trust level, database (SQL Server, MySQL).

Also open the log directory and check for any logged exceptions.

My mistake
I just realized that I renamed a directory in the Web project
It was the source of all my problems
In ASP MVC, names are very important

Thanks for your help

No problem :o) what is important is that it is resolved.
