    Hello Aenan,

    Add a XSLT mapping with below code then it should work.

    <xsl:stylesheet version="2.0" xmlns:xsl="">
    	<xsl:output method="xml" encoding="Windows-1252" indent="yes"/>
    	<xsl:template match="@*|node()[./node()]">
    			<xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

    Or may be you could you the below script as well **this could be the complicated approach may be**

    import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
    class sortXML {
    static main(args) {
    String body = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\" standalone=\"no\"?><Root><Emp><PersonId>10001</PersonId><Child><F1>JOE DOE</F1><F2>SGP</F2><F3>2010-01-06</F3><F4>10001</F4></Child><Child><F1>Chris Tiu</F1><F2>SGP</F2><F3>2012-01-26</F3><F4>10001</F4></Child></Emp><Emp><PersonId>10653</PersonId><Child><F1>Test Child</F1><F2>SGP</F2><F3>2008-11-29</F3><F4>10653</F4></Child><Child><F1>jane doe</F1><F2>SGP</F2><F3>1994-01-05</F3><F4>10653</F4></Child></Emp></Root>";
            def parseXML = new XmlParser().parseText(body);
    def varStringWriter = new StringWriter();
    def varXMLBuilder   = new MarkupBuilder(varStringWriter);
    int empNodes = 0 ;
    int empChildNodes = 0 ;
    int childPicker = 0 ;
    String empNumber ;
    String empF1 ;
    String empF2;
    String empF3;
    String empF4;
    String nodeBody ;
    empNodes = parseXML.Emp.size();
    for(int empItr = 0 ; empItr < empNodes ; empItr++)
    childPicker = 0 ;
    empNumber     = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].PersonId.text().toString()}"
    empChildNodes = parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child.size();
    for(int childItr = 0 ; childItr < empChildNodes - 1 ; childItr ++)
    String empF3Temp ;
    empF3     = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childItr].F3.text().toString()}"
    empF3Temp = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childItr+1].F3.text().toString()}"
    if(empF3 < empF3Temp)
    childPicker = childItr+1;
    empF1 = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childPicker].F1.text().toString()}"
    empF2 = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childPicker].F2.text().toString()}"
    empF3 = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childPicker].F3.text().toString()}"
    empF4 = "${parseXML.Emp[empItr].Child[childPicker].F4.text().toString()}"
    def xml = varStringWriter.toString();
    nodeBody = xml ;
    println nodeBody ;
