Re: Industrial Strength XML Serving
| Okay, I'm largely convinced/reassured. : | Are we storing native XML in Oracle, or intermediately putting it into | tables, then indexing,then running searches on that? We offer two approaches for storage of XML in 8i: (1) If you're XML is being used as an Internet exchange format for E-Business information, then it makes the most sense to store the business information in the way that existing applications, data warehousing tools, and reporting tools can still leverage it, as well as in a way which enables querying the data efficiently from any point of view instead of through a fixed hierarchy imposed by a single XML document structure. In practice, your business data represents many virtual XML documents, depending on the business task at hand. (2) If you're storing XML marked-up legal proceedings or contracts, or dissertations, then you can mix and match our full-text searching and xml section searching over documents and document fragments stored in character In future releases when we're living in an XML Schema aware environment with much more datatype-rich schema information available, this seamless XML-in and XML-out gets even smarter. ________________________________________________________ Steve Muench, BC4J Development Team & XML Evangelist http://technet.oracle.com/tech/java http://technet.oracle.com/tech/xml xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
