This seems like a pretty silly problem. I'm using a Maven build with GeoTools 14.0. All I want is to compare CRSs with flexibility so that it doesn't have to be exactly equal as long as all the parameters are equal.
There's a method listed for that here: http://docs.geotools.org/stable/userguide/library/referencing/compare.html as
But it doesn't actually exist in the GeoTools library or API docs. What gives? What's the alternative besides manually doing it, which is doable but just seeing how convoluted/intricate the CRS structure is in GeoTools this seems like a lot of work that should be unnecessary for a major spatial library.
