xml benchmark

The XML Benchmark Project

We'd like to announce the first public version of Xmark, a framework
intended to help users analyze XML query processors.

The benchmark consists of 

 * an application scenario which models an internet auction site,

 * the data generation tool xmlgen to generate the benchmark document
   at different scaling factors, and

 * 20 XQuery challenges carefully designed to cover essential aspects
   of XML query processing.

You can get an overview of the project at


where you also find the downloadables: the data generator, the query
suite, and design rationales.  More detailed background information on
the application scenario and the data generation process is available at


as a technical report. 

We also provide SQL versions of both schema and queries to facilitate
comparison with conventional RDBMS's.

The project team,
