Output page comparison

By default, a leaf will be included in the release update pack when the content of the leaf changes, or when the leaf is manually, conditionally or automatically included. You can also use output page comparison to influence the size of the update pack. This control is applied by enabling the following partition properties:

  • Exclude all leaves with unchanged output. When this property is enabled, TopLeaf compares the updated and published output for those leaves in which the content of the leaf has changed or the leaf has been manually, conditionally or automatically included. If the output for the leaf is unchanged, then the leaf will be excluded from the update pack. Setting this option has the potential to reduce the size of the update pack.

  • Check all pages for output changes. When this property is enabled, TopLeaf compares the updated and published output for all leaves in the partition. If the output for a leaf has changed, then that leaf will be included in the update pack. Setting this option has the potential to increase the size of the update pack.
