Document comparison is a process of finding differences in two documents of same format. It can be a content difference or can be any contextual differences. GroupDocs.Comparison for Java compares a source document with a target document and produces a result document which highlights the differences in a suitable way i.e. colored highlighting or by differing font information that has either been added to or removed from the reference document to produce the target document.
