I have tested classes, but is possible test XML files.

Which tools are easier to use?

"Test XML" is a very broad topic. See the Wikipedia article for more detail, but here are possible interpretations.

You could test that an XML document is well formed according to the syntax rules.

You could test that the XML document conforms to a published DTD.

You could test that the XML document conforms to a published Schema or an industry standard of some sort.

To have a broader picture of what are the validation errors you may expect to receive, you can use an Eclipse IDE or any other tool which has a capability of handling XML files ( Rational Application Developer or MyEclipse or XMLSpy etc.) and place respective DTD or Schema or even simply the XML. And you can validate the XML by right clicking on the xml file. The IDE will validate the XML and provide you the success / warning or Error messages upon validating the XML.

I agree. Here's the link:
