Abstract

The Web and XML have influenced all walks of lives of those who transact business over the Internet. People like to do their transactions from their homes to save time and money. For example, customers like to pay their utility bills and other banking transactions from their homes through the Internet. Most companies, including banks, maintain their records using relational database technology. But the traditional relational database technology is unable to provide all these new facilities to the customers. To make the traditional relational database technology cope with the Web and XML technologies, we need a transformation between the XML technology and the relational database technology as middleware. In this chapter, we present a new and simpler algorithm for this purpose. This algorithm transforms a schema of a XML document into a relational database schema, taking into consideration the requirement of relational database technology.
