I have a requirement to find out the differences between XML files of the current release and previous release, and report the differences in HTML format. These XML files are packaged in a jar during the build of their modules (in Maven), and are stored in our repository. I need to find and report differences during this Maven build process, and hence I am looking for a Maven plugin.

I found similar questions, but these are pretty old, and I was wondering if we have something latest:

Is writing a Maven plugin with XMLUnit the best way to go with this? Do we have any Maven plugins?

  • I have in the past used BeyondCompare to perform such a task manually. It has features custom tailored to XML files that make it slightly easier to do it - still a lot of work. And no it does not generate HTML reports. – tmj May 18 '19 at 17:10
