Hello,

Thanks for your response

>1. currently I am decoding my plug-ins with pcap files and I have traffic to decode the plug-ins. i.e. as you

E.g you load filses written in pcap format and your (plugin)dissector dissects them?

>2. regarding xml files decoding, my protocols are not yet ready to decode xml files, I think I have to make some >changes in my code in order to make it decode xml files.

You want to load trace files written in xml format?

>3. now my query is, as I decoded my plug-ins with pcap, in the similar way I want to decode with xml, and I want >to know what are changes required to do like that? Also I don't know how to load xml file into Wireshark for

You have to write a wiretap module or plugin to read that file format.

>4. I still don't have xml files, I have to write those sample xml files.

but now I want to decode them using xml files.

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.) ________________________________________________________________________
