There's a company called Compusult which makes a product called
Meta Manager, which provides a Z39.50 front end that can hook to
an Oracle DB at the backend. It's really intended for people trying
to make geospatial data available in accordance with FGDC's content
standards, but I suspect it can be tweaked for other uses. See
http://www.compusult.nf.ca for details.
You'll also want to have a look at Blue Angel's Meta Star Enterprise
package (http://www.blueangeltech.com), which provides a
Z39.50 server integrated with ODBC functionality. It provides
pretty much everything you need for storing XML in databases
and making it available through Z39.50.
There is a commercial, Java package for Z39.50 work available,
although I haven't tried it. It's called zedJava, and you can
get further details at http://roadrunner.crxnet.com/wwwzedjava.html.
Also, as a general rule, the Library of Congress is a good place
to look for information on Z39.50 and X. Their website at
a fairly comprehensive list of the major software packages available
for establishing Z39.50 client/server operations.
Hope that helps.
