DeltaXML for XML File Comparisons
Monsell's "DeltaXML" range of products help identify and monitor changes to XML documents and data files.
For all XML users who need to identify changes to their XML files, a "DeltaXML Markup" comparator is now available. This software compares XML documents and data files and generates a delta file in XML. The delta file can be displayed directly or using XSL style sheets (examples included in the download), or processed for other purposes using standard XML tools.
For those using a specific XML format (DTD), DeltaXML DTD can provide an even more intelligent comparison, based on the actual allowed structure of the files. This will produce smaller and more accurate change files and enable handling of data that is not inherently ordered.
As you can only manage and control the things that you can identify, DeltaXML identifies changes to all XML data and provides a key part of any XML management strategy.
DeltaXML also provides delta files allowing you to keep users up to date by sending them small change files, without having to re-send large XML files.
Applications of DeltaXML are many and varied including:
- regression testing of XML software
- XML file updates
- displaying changes for review and authorization
- checking changes made by hand to XML documents and data
