RE: RE: Companies that have switched from RDBMS to pure XML da
The big 3 (MS, Oracle, IBM) chose Hybrid Relational/XML as a plan. Ron Bourret has some categories on his site http://www.rpbourret.com/xml/XMLDatabaseProds.htm#categories - he may have data on this as well. I have always been of two minds when someone says Native XML Database. The first mind is suspicous - show me the features - the trueness to XQuery and Xml DM. The second mind is that if you set out to be "native" you will have less artifacts of being non native. Our company moved the other direction - from native XML to relational. This was mostly due to the cost effectiveness of relational and the fact that if we wanted XQuery we could get it for free from IBM DB2 Express.

Companies that by-passed RDBMS and went straight to XML database would be appropriate for my list. Michael Kay wrote: > People don't "switch" from one technology to another.

Do you know of companies that have opted for XML databases instead of free text databases, document management systems, operating systems filestores, or object databases? /Roger _______________________________________________________________________ XML-DEV is a publicly archived, unmoderated list hosted by OASIS to support XML implementation and development.
