Compare Schema's...XSD

Hey all,

I am currently researching ways to compare databases via an XSD schema.
I wrote a small app that creates a dataset from a database and exports
that dataset to XSD. This gives me an XSD file with tables and
relationships representing the entire database.

At this point, I am trying to find ways to compare these schemas. Does
anybody know of a way to do this easily and to record differences if
there are any?

Also, any information on comparing databases using any method would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

My knowledge on XSD is weak, so I skip that question. For comparing
databases in general, a common recommendation is Red Gate's SQL Compare,
although I have never used it myself.

I actually tested their software and it was quite good, but we can't use
it because of their licensing. They even provide an API that can be
used in .NET, but their licensing methods are terrible...read the fine
print.

I am trying to determine the changes an application makes to a database. The plan is to copy the existing schema (active) to a reference schema, run the application and then diff the table data between the reference and the a active schema. I have found one software vendor who has a tool to do this, but it will only do one table at a time (interactively); I have more then 300 and will run this a few times. One other way of determining...

I have two tables and I want to compare these two tables with a query( ie. "select * from A where B.key = A.key") and the result will be stored in a 3rd table (table C). is this possible? If necessary, I can create the schema for the 3rd table (C) since it'll be exactly like table A. But I'm more interested in being able to store the resulting set into another table. Thanks.

I have 2 datatables. They are identical. I want to compare them by cell's content. They are all same. But dt1 == dt2 or dt1.GetHashCode() == dt2.GetHashCode() doesn 't work. There are big amount of rows in theese datatables . So i don 't want to enumerate each rows. This is not efficient and unacceptable for my current application.
