WS SIG (SF): Enterprise Database Design for XML





    Mark Scardina, Group Product Manager, XML Development Group Oracle


    Presentation Overview


    Enterprise Database Design for XML Today's emergence of XML and Web Services to implement a new generation of applications in both the Content Management and B2B/B2C areas bring new requirements to backend enterprise databases. The time-tested relational model is no longer sufficient to meet the needs of distributed and service-based applications without performance robbing mid-tier interfaces. Thus there is keen interest in having databases store XML without these costly object bindings or transformations. This presentation will discuss the requirements for storing XML in the Database and three different strategies and associated standards. It will then detail each and their associated advantages and disadvantages while explaining the applications they are each suited for. It will include demonstrations of each based upon actual applications.
