Does Review Assistant support integration with 3rd party code compare tool?

I am considering getting Review Assistant for my development team, but I need to know if it will integrate nicely with Beyond Compare. I don't want to buy another code compare tool. Let me know. Thanks.

Yes, you can integrate with the 3rd party code compare tool. Here you can read how to do this: http://www.devart.com/review-assistant/documentation/How_to_Quickly_Setup_Review_Assistant.html

But note, that with another diff tool you will lose benefits of using Code Compare, such as the "Add comment to review" option in the context menu and visibility of open comments during the diff process.

Thanks. Follow-up question: Does a purchase of Review Assistant include Code Compare? What is the behavior of Review Assistant when comparing code if I don't have Code Compare, and I haven't set it up to use Beyond Compare?

No, it does not. There is a free version of Code Compare that, perhaps, meets all your needs for the review process in Review Assistance. You can compare features at the link below: http://www.devart.com/codecompare/featurematrix.html

You can continue working with separate file revisions without ability to perform comparison operations.
