Running VCE 1.0.15
VCE will not compare subtrees for more than two elements.
E.G. Select 4 JVMs in the tree and select comparison. VCE does not give a subtrees options and produces a properties comparison for the 4 jvms but no object comparison results.

Re: WAS - no subtree comparison with more than two jvms.2009-08-27T02:37:41Z in response to SystemAdminThis is working as designed. The current implementation of VCE "Compare subtrees" is only capable of comparing 2 trees at a time. It was a design decision we made early on due mainly to the complexity and scaling issues associated with comparing n numbers of trees, and having an effective way to display the different premutations of possible differences (e.g. a=b, !=c, !=d, d=c, etc.. it gets to be a mess very quickly).
"Compare properties" on the other hand is a much simpler usage scenario which lended itself well to using a simple merged table view, and since you are only comparing one tree element (i.e. object), the same scaling issues do not apply.
