Re: XQuery & Several records (instead of one xml-field)
Hi Jim, I got hold of DB2 9.1 (sorry I couldn't try Oracle RDBMS), and investigated the XML and XQuery support in it. I am pleasently happy with the functionailty. I wrote my findings at: http://gandhimukul.tripod.com/db2_9.htm DB2 also merges SQL and XQuery processing (the underlying execution tree is same I guess), as you said for Oracle.
