Re: storing xml files into database

Naturally there is  inconvenience in storing the xmls on the file system.  
Could you explain your requirements a bit more.  Why is it that you find the filesystem inconvenient?
I am looking for 2 solutions ; a zero cost solution
If  you go back and check the archives of this list, you will find announcements for couple of open source initiatves.

and reasonable cost solutions (may be involving the xml aware databases like Ixiasoft xml server)
Take a look at our Xfinity Server.  It is a reasonable cost solution and is fully XML aware.
1. In considering a database as storage mechanism, what advantages I would get
2. In such scenario what other people do?
3. If I want to store the xmls in say MySQL, how do I do it and does mysql have any special features?
Xfinity is tested on MySQL on Linux.
4. What about MS-SQL  server;
Xfinity supports MS-SQL Server 7.0 and 2000.
5. Should xmls be stored as blobs in the rdbms databases?
Depends on whether you need granular access to your XML documents or not.  Also what kind of search capabilities you need and what performance requirements you have.
6. Optionally, I am also looking for 'search' ability where the database should be able to index the elements of xml file and perform search.
A better explanation of your requirements would help but Xfinity supports "all of the reqs" you mention here out of the box.
