sorry my wording may get you confused..

My requirement is not to compress the xml files and i have used above mentioned code. I want to know whether there is any way we cannot compress a file using the content type rather than extensions for deflate filter.

First, why in the world would you NOT want to compress xml documents.  They are the perfect choice for for compression.  

Anyway, you can do this by type, but you need to do it backwards.  That is you compress nothing by default and then use AddOoutputFilterByType for what you want to compress.  Here is an example:

Setting SetOutputFilter DEFLATE will cause all output to be deflated by default.  When you remove it, then no output will be deflated, unless you specifically tell Apache to do it.

Can I ask why you don't want to compress XML?

Ah, O.K.  I did a quick search and found this:

http://mentalized.net/journal/2007/07/31/warning_gzip_content_flash_player_and_internet_explorer_6/

Which I am assuming is still a problem.  Apparently IE does not un-compress data prior to passing it to Flash (I would assume any plug-in for that matter).  I would further assume that Flash can't handle compressed data.

And

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html

only does not fit your requirement? That should set the filter DEFLATE to the specified types only. A xml file should have text/xml or application/xml or something other but not text/html or text/plain, so output filtering should not occur.
