full xml file comparison against another xml file
Ok. I have been searching for a couple of days for previous development of a script that will compare two xml files against each other. But have come up short handed. I take it that full file comparison is not done normally within the web world. I have seen craterfulls of applications for the 'desktop', but none for the web world.
The xml files are formatted in such a way as the data that each node contains is in the attributes of that node.
- <node attribute="pickles" attribute2="donuts" />
What I am trying to do is full file (answerKey.xml) compare the node name and each attribute of the node against studentSubmission.xml file compare.
I have attached a sample file that could be used as an answerKey. within my web application, a student will be submitting something similar (at least the instructor hopes). I want the web application to do the comparisons in a 'behind the scene' fashion.
A failure in any node should output something. This part is easy.
Any suggestions or paths to check out would be helpful. I am stuck.
It is not the job you get handed, but what you have done with it in the end that people remember.
