In the pending change view, it can create Jazz Source Control Patch. Is there any way to generate the diff patch directly?

What do you mean by that? You can create a patch with the SCM CLI, if that is what you are asking.

is there any easy way to do that directly within eclipse workspace?
eg. select file, then run the command like (create patch, apply patch)
just like how patch is supported with SVN repository...

No. The action is only available from Unresolved changes and change sets in the Pending Changes view or from change sets in the Change Explorer.

Yeah, I noticed that. However this creates a Jazz source control patch ... still different from the diff patch. I was looking for a diff patch...

A Jazz Source Control patch is just a diff patch that has some extra metadata in the comments.
