I assume that, when you say "I am decoding my plug-ins with .pcap files using Wireshark", you mean that you have pcap files that contain traffic for your protocol, and you have a plugin for your protocol that decodes that traffic.

I also assume that "but now I want to decode them using xml files" means that:

        1) your protocol uses XML as its encoding;

        2) you have text files containing XML, and that XML uses the same DTD as the XML in your protocol - i.e., the contents of the file look like the contents of a packet for your protocol - and you want to be able to read your XML files into Wireshark and have it decode the XML file in the same fashion in which Wireshark can decode the XML traffic for your protocol.

Are those correct assumptions? (We need to know in order to know what you're asking, and we need to know what you're asking in order to answer your question.)
