Application Programming Interface for XML DBMS: design and implementation proposal.
As XML becomes ubiquitous, there are a growing number of applications that utilize it. Most of such applications working with some kinds of XML storages, in particular with Native XML Databases, need to perform navigation over XML data retrieved from the database. The Application Programming Interface with efficient navigational facilities, that XML DBMS must provide these applications with, is still under discussion among XML DBMS developers. In this paper we present design and implementation of XML DBMS Application Programming Interface that provides efficient navigational facilities.Full text of the paper in pdf
