Why are we DB’ers interested?
It’s data, stupid. That’s us.
Proof by Altavista:
- database+XML -- 40,000 pages.
- How are we going to model XML? (graphs).
- How are we going to query XML? (XML-QL)
- How are we going to store XML (in a relational database? object-oriented?)
- How are we going to process XML efficiently? (uh… well..., um..., ah..., get some good grad students!)
