RE: XML faster than mySQL database ?

xml faster than database
In my mind, performance is one aspect. What is much more interesting is -

A. Is it possible to cut development cost for web applications using XML,
XML Schema, XSLT, XPath, XQuery drastically ?

B. Is it easy to make changes to this XML-based web applications to
accommodate business changes ? In other words, are this applications easier
to maintain ?

More I work with XML technologies, I am convinced that the current JSP/ASP
way of building web applications has outlived its life-cycle.

Thatcher wins.  The Yugo won't cross the finish line,
(YuGo but You May Not Come Back!)
if Andretti has to drive it all out for 48 hours,
and Thatcher never lost a race she was determined
to win given a sufficiently powerful party to
carry her.

Platforms matter.

How well you can dynamically generate content for the Web site is more a
function of techniques and developer skill than whether you are using mySQL
or an XML database.

Given a Porsche, a Yugo, and the LeMans raceway, who will win a 24-hour


Does it matter if Michael Andretti is driving the Yugo and Margaret Thatcher
is driving the  Porsche?
