XMLUnit 2.x Development Moved to GitHub
XMLUnit provides help with testing code that creates or consumes XML.
XMLUNit 2.x is available for both Java and .NET with a similar API. Development of this version has moved to a GitHub organization with two git repositories for Java and .NET respectively.
All discussion about XMLUnit independent of any version will happen on the XMLUnit general mailing list.
XMLUnit for Java 1.x will still be maintained using the Sourceforge infrastructure that has served as well for many years.
We don't intend to maintain XMLUnit for .NET 0.x any longer.
Well, I didn't use it a lot, but I have an opinion already. 1) API - why not to copy Java version? Is it very comfortable to create new XmlDiff AND always call Compare method? Similar and Identical much more descriptive than Equals and Identical. BTW where is .Net naming (IsIdentical, IsSimilar)? 2) About features - if attributes placed in different order, xml is not identical. If there is a white space, xml is not identical. It was enough for me, to stop using this XmlUnit version. Also I didn't find difference in behavior between Equal and Identical. 3) There is no xml documentation. Why should I spend time reviewing all your classes and guessing what they are doing? So, I didn't find any advantages of .Net XmlUnit - comparing strings gives same result, but saves your time. P.S. I found, that DiffConfiguration can set validation of attriubutes order and white spaces. But anyway, output of xmlunit is still awful - no tag name of error, no char position. It is more useless, than string comparision, because last one shows WHAT is wrong. Not just difference Id and red line. Completely useless library.
