You can do something similar to the following:

Basically, have your trigger call a asynchronous web service.  Then your web service can update the objects.

How are you getting your 'XML file'? Will the user upload it from a VF page? Will it be accssed from an external service? If latter then, follow the link posted by the previous user.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm calling the xml file from API, and Stores the file in a field in a custom object.I need to call the file values from that field through a trigger.
