Hi,
While googling through the net I came to know about XMLDiff class. but not getting any examples or something and that too its in oracle.xml.differ package.Just I want to know from where can I get this package do I need to download it or it comes with JDK kit. If I cant use that then is there any other possibilities of comparing XML files.
Thanks in advance.

XML diff is a complicated issue, most diff tools are buggy. I don't know about XMLDiff, however, I know their other products are decent and good.

Here is my answer to similar question several years ago
<out-of-date>
Q. Where can I find a tool/resource to diff XML?
A:
* IBM has an applet.
* MicroSoft has an exe.
* There are many open source ones on the web.
* Do a search, you will find them.
* Be prepared, they are all buggy.

In theory, this is the best article for the topic so far, but it is not easy to read or implement: An Algorithm for Finding the Largest Approximately Common Substructures of Two Trees Enjoy!
