Java XML diff toolkit
21:17, 13 Dec 2001 UTC | Bijan Parsia

Joining the swelling ranks of tools for generating deltas between XML documents, VMTools is a new open source Java toolkit.

Features include:

  • cost optimizer finds differences in document oriented XML as quickly as in data-oriented XML
  • sample programs show "diff" and "patch" style functionality in a few dozen lines each
  • web-based DifferenceGenerator and PatchApplicator available online
  • builds on JDOM
  • XPath subset implementation

VMTools is available for download under an Apache-like open source license.
