Abstract

Recently, the use of eXtensible Markup Language (XML) continues to grow in popularity, large repositories of XML documents are going to emerge, and users are likely to pose increasingly more complex queries on these data sets. In 2001 XQuery is decided by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as the standard XML query language. In this article, we describe the design and implementation of an efficient and scalable purely relational XQuery processor which translates expressions of the XQuery language into their equivalent SQL evaluation scripts. The experiments of this article demonstrated the efficiency and scalability of our purely relational approach in comparison to the native XML/XQuery functionality supported by conventional RDBMSs and has shown that our purely relational approach for implementing XQuery processor deserves to be pursued further.
