Compare Projects

It is often useful to compare the size and row counts of two projects; for example, after:

A database crash
Importing from XMI, or
Deleting model elements

 

Enterprise Architect examines the number of rows in each database and produces a report indicating the total records in each and the difference in record count between the two. No examination is made of the data in the table.

Comparing projects this way is a convenient 'sanity check' after restoring a backup or doing a project data transfer. If discrepancies are found, you must investigate further manually.
