An Overview of Berkeley DB XML
Dan Brian, Software Engineer, Conceptuary

Track: XML
Date: Wednesday, August 3rd, 2005
Time: 1:45pm - 2:30pm
Location: E144

Many developers are reluctant to adopt XML as a data storage format because of the lack of simple tools for indexing and querying collections of XML documents. Open source's favorite embedded database now has a production-ready, full-featured sister, Berkeley DB XML. Running almost anywhere the Berkeley DB is supported, with support for XPath 2.0 and XQuery, flexible indexing and storage, transactions and recovery, DB XML is a sophisticated and reliable database for XML.

This session covers:

- Why use an XML database?
- DB XML overview and installation
- Indexing options
- Simple queries with XPath
- Complex queries with XQuery and FLWR
- Large and complex dataset query demonstration
- Examples in C++, Perl, Python, Java, and PHP
