Do you need to store the content of the XML document in RDBMS tables? If that's the case, DataDirect XQuery (available as a deployment component from http://www.xquery.com, but also bundled in Stylus Studio for development purposes) supports the ability to update your database from an XQuery. One of the examples shows how to shred a simple XML document into two tables; given this XML:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

...this XQuery will "shred" its content in two tables, "users" and "holdings":

for $newUser in doc("new-users.xml")/new-users/user
return (
"userid", $newUser/id, "firstname", $newUser/first-name,
"lastname", $newUser/last-name, "membersince", $newUser/date),
for $holding in $newUser/holdings/holding
ddtek:sql-insert("holdings", "userid", $newUser/id,
"stockticker", $holding/ticker, "shares", $holding/quantity)
