Professional XML Databases

As an increasing number of people are using XML to pass data across the enterprise, they are also finding it an invaluable storage format. This allows for the re-purposing of data, which has been marked up in XML for unlimited different purposes - capturing the essence of what XML as data is about - flexible and platform independent.

Book Rocks!!

this is very well written book. the material presented in this book are exhaustive and gets you good insight on how xml would be used with dbms. the chapters 2,3 and 4 are very informatiove as they list ou tthe steps required for converting db table to xml and vice versa.

Good overview of new XML and database trends

I read through this book at more of an advanced developer level, so I'm going to treat it from that level.The chapter on XQuery was great; it answered many of my questions concisely. There is very little information on the web about XQuery outside the site, so I was surprised to find such high quality information in a book. XPath is also a newer API that is covered well in this book, giving you enough information to get your project going.If you're planning to do any kind of development with XML coming in or going out of a relational database, this is an excellent book to buy. I also recommend Professional XML from Wrox and O'Reilly's XML in a nutshell.


If you want to exploit SQL's support for XML, this is THE BOOK to buy. The book does NOT come with a CD, but the code samples can be downloaded from Wrox's site in a zip file. This book is not for the XML or SQL novice, but if you have a rudimentary education in either (as I do, I only started using SQL Server 2000 a couple of weeks ago) then you should be able to follow it.

Best book available on XML and Databases

This is the best book currently available on XML and databases. I especially like that it contains many practical examples. If you're using SQL Server 2000, the chapters on SQL XML are excellent. Even if you're not using that particular database, I think you will find this book a valuable resource.
