REPL example

scala> <foo/> =?= <foo/>
res0: com.github.andyglow.xml.diff.package.XmlDiff = Eq

scala> <foo/> =?= <bar/>
res1: com.github.andyglow.xml.diff.package.XmlDiff = Neq(List(UnequalElem(foo,List(UnequalName(foo,bar)))))

scala> <foo x="a"/> =?= <foo x="b"/>
res2: com.github.andyglow.xml.diff.package.XmlDiff = Neq(List(UnequalElem(foo,List(UnequalAttribute(x,a,b)))))

scala> <foo><bar key="val1" key2="val2"/></foo> =?= <foo><bar key="val2" key3="val3"/></foo>

// not ignoring whitespace      
scala> <jaz>foo</jaz> =?= <jaz>foo </jaz>

Scalatest example

import org.scalatest.xml.XmlMatchers._
"MyRestService" must {
  "generate proper xml" in {
    val document: xml.NodeSeq = service.call(...)
    document should beXml(
      <document>
        <title>Invoice</title>
        <version>0.6.2</version>
        <header></header>
        <content>
          <line id="...">...</line>
        </content>
      </document>
    )
  }
  
  // it is also possible to match negative scenarios
  "be able to distinguish <bar/> from <foo/>" in {
    <bar/> should not beXml <foo/>
  }
  
  // you then can match ignoring whitespace
  "match not counting leading/trailing whitespaces" in {
    <foo>x</foo> should beXml (<foo> x </foo>, ignoreWhitespaces = true)
  }
  
  // the same could be done using not beXml
  
}
