Sourabh,

For questions about EMF compare, it's best to use the EMFT newsgroup,
which I've added to the "to" list of the reply, and to prefix your
subject line with [Compare].

This tutorial explains how to generate a model assuming you have a
schema for your XML files:

Tutorial: Generating an EMF Model using XML Schema
< http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/indextools.cgi/*checkout*/org .eclipse.emf/doc/org.eclipse.emf.doc/tutorials/xlibmod/xlibm od.html>

The compare framework should be able to help you compare two instances
of your model.

Hi,

As Ed said you'll first need to use the EMF-XSD component to generate an EMF
model from an XML Schema.

Then you may use emf compare to compare your models, I started an FAQ on the
wiki for this kind of needs (this link is both for comparison inside or
outside Eclipse)

Cheers,
