Hello,
I am looking for a basis to start implementing an xml comparator. Form what i read so far about EMF Compare is that i first need and XSD which i have to transform to ECORE and then i can start implementing my comparator.
In my case, i do not have the XSD in advance, i should be able to compare 2 xml corresponding to the same XSD, but the XSD are not known in advance.
Therefore i wonder whether EMF Compare is adapted to what i need to implement.
Thank you for your help
Philippe

Philippe,

When you say 'the XSD are not known in advance' it's not known in
advance of what? It needs to be known before you read your instance
files, or at least while your reading them. EMF can dynamically
convert and XSD to an Ecore which is then used to read the XML (without
generating a model for the Ecore). The compare framework should be able
to deal with such a dynamic Ecore model.
