Re: Compressed XML and XSLT
An XQuery implementation that supports document projection, such as DataDirect XQuery, creates only the portion of the input document needed to process the query. Document projection was originated by the Galax people, and their processor was the first I know of to do document projection. If you use streaming output, you can be very efficient in your memory usage. I've successfully queried 60 Gig files, not instantly but reasonably quickly. I know Saxon can do XSLT transforms in this range. See http://www.saxonica.com/documentation/sourcedocs/serial.html (or wait for Mike to chip in ;->) Jonathan Jeff Lowery wrote: > Is there an solution that can take an XML file in a compressed format > that will perform the minimal in-memory expansion needed to apply > various extraction filters? > > The problem is this: given a large, compressed XML file, I want to > apply varous filtering templates to produce an abstract of the > original, which may be many times smaller.
