This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I would like to compare two XML Documents to determine if they are equivalent. I am trying to rewrite software that crates the documents and want to see if I am achieving the same results as the former approach. I know my approach will have different white space and also a different order of attributes within an element. However, I want to assure that each node has the same parent, children and siblings, and that each element has the same attributes.
I can imagine writing my own code to traverse the tree and determine equivalence, but I was hoping there to use existing code to achieve this.
