With the growing usage of XML in the World Wide Web and elsewhere as a standard for the exchange of data and to represent semi-structured data, there is an imminent need for tools and techniques to perform data mining on XML documents and XML repositories. In this chapter, we propose a framework for association rule mining on XML data. We present a Java-based implementation of the Apriori and the FP-Growth algorithms for this task and compare their performances. We also compare the performance of our implementation with an XQuery-based implementation.
