DB->XML; XML->DB approaches
- I have played with the XML-DBMS package and it worked fine. Good work
!! I�m going to write my final academic work about DB-XML
and looking for more theoretical stuff. I intend to use the package
for the practical part of my final work
There are several ways to map a DB scheme to a XML-structure and vice
versa. For example which attributes should one map as elements, which
one as attributes? Especially by a more complex DB structure there
more possibilities (e.g. n-m relationships,inheritance, ..) to build
the XML structure.
One of my target is to evaluate different approaches.
I also like to compare the possibilities given with a DTD and in
comparison XML-schema. XML-schema supports inheritance, so it has
probably a major impact in that context?!
Would you tell me about any source you know?
