RE: XML versus Relational Database

Both.  The relational systems I see now in 
commercial work all have object components. 
The two or three that I consider the industry 
leaders now have XML support.  So, one doesn't 
have to have either or.  In terms of maturity, 
the relational programmers have had a lot of 
experience with automatic optimization for 
large datasets.    This topic pops up from 
time to time and most of the answers 
can be summarized as, no size fits all.
