Comparing 2 xml files

Hi all,

I would like to know if there are any existing Sun 3pp available to compare 2 xml files. If not, is there any way other than unmarshalling the xml to JAVA objects and then do the comparison?

Also, I have a text file which needs to be compared with an existing xml file. I thought this text file can be converted to xml and then the comparison can be done. Please let me know if my approach is correct.

Thanks in advance!!
