Fixing Git Conflicts in eclipse


Git is a powerful source code management system that is widely used in software development. But like all things, it can be susceptible to conflicts. In this article, we’ll show you how to quickly and easily fix Git conflicts in eclipse using the Fixing Git Conflicts wizard.

Git conflict

If you’re like most developers, you’ve probably experienced a git conflict at some point in your career. Conflicts occur when two or more files in a git repository have changes that don’t match up. This can be a problem because it means you can’t merge the changes from one file into another.

Fortunately, resolving conflicts is usually easy in most cases. The following steps will help you solve most conflicts in Eclipse:

1. Open the conflicting file in Eclipse and make the changes you want to apply to it.
2. Save the file using the “File” menu item or the “Ctrl+S” keyboard shortcut.
3. Optionally, try to resolve any merge issues by doing one of the following:
a. Use the “Git Add” command to add the contents of another file to the current conflicted file.
b. Use the “Git Merge” command to try to combine the changes from both files into a single new file.
c. Use the “Git Rebase” command to update the changes in one file based on the changes in another file (usually used when resolving a merge issue).
4. Commit your changes using either of the following commands:

Resolution strategies

If you’re having problems working with git conflicts in Eclipse, there are a few different strategies you can try.

First, make sure your source files are properly tracked by git. If they’re not, you’ll have to add them to your project before you can work with conflicts.

Another strategy is to try using the “Resolve Conflicts” command in the Git menu bar. This will help you identify and solve the conflicts automatically.

If that still doesn’t work, you can try using the “Fix-Up Commits” feature in Eclipse. This will help you correct commit messages and merge changes together.


If you’re working on a project that uses Git, there’s a good chance you’ll encounter conflicts at some point. Conflicts occur when two or more developers are working on the same file, and they end up with different versions of the file. When this happens, you need to resolve the conflict before you can continue working on your project. There are a few different ways to do this, and each has its own set of pros and cons. In this blog post, we’ll look at how tofix Git conflicts in eclipse using the most common method: using the Git commands line tool.
