Hello Huawei,

the easiest way to do this is to use an "Execute shell command" node
to run a diff command on the standard and generated versions of the

Follow this with a "Wait for process to terminate" node and wait for
exit code 0. Wrap the whole thing in try catch to convert the
"UnexpectedExitCodeException" exception to an error:

+ Try
  + Execute shell command: diff ...
  + Wait for process to terminate: expected exit code 0, timeout ~5000
  + Catch UnexpectedExitCodeException: Set max error level to error

As a bonus, you'll automatically get the differences between the files
logged as output from the diff command next to the

Of course you can also use jython to read the files line by line and
compare these. It's not too difficult.

Best regards,
