There are duplications of JAR files name in the file and I was wondering if there is a way
to some how get ride of the duplication, to get a file which has a unique set of JAR file

I'm confused since you really didn't specify exactly what it is:

* Can you show some of the structure of the XML file, so I can look at
what has to
  be parsed.
* Is this a generated list at build time, or is this something that is
checked into
  your repository?
* If this is a generated list at build time, exactly where are you
getting the information
  for this XML?

This will help me understand the possible issues involved. It would be
better if we could correct the duplication before they were put into
the XML file instead of parsing them out afterwards.
