RE: [xml-dev] XML diff tool / algorithm

You could look at "xcmp" which does a compare (not a diff) in linear time and memory using StAX.
This is NOT a "diff" but the technique (as Manos mentions) is using a streaming processor and comparing data as you get it.
You could use the general concept to do some kinds of diffs as long as the lookahead isnt too great.

Doing a deep-diff is much more complex and also very specific to your needs.   I suspect with the sizes your quoting the only feasable way would be using an XML Database.

since a useful diff varies per case, i'd find it  easier to write a SAX 
filter or STX script to produce what i want VS playing with a tool for 
large docs.
