RE: storing xml files into database


But not functional enough for benchmarking ;->.  They have a 50 MB limit
on the size of the database, a lot of their enterprise features (like
X-Node) are not present, and they have other limitations that make
benchmarking impossible on the Starter Kit (trust me... we tried ;->).
We even tried to BUY a full version of Tamino from them, and they
wouldn't sell to us (are they scared? ;->).  We also ran into two
prospect situations where the customers asked for a competitive
benchmark against Tamino and SoftwareAG walked away when they found out
it was against us (and thus we won the deals ;->).

I believe we (eXcelon) have the most mature product for solving these
problems out there.  But, I'd like someone to prove it... I just don't
think the market is quite large enough yet for the analysts to get
really serious about it.  Hence why we have a Platform solution where
XIS is a part rather than concentrating on making our millions on just
XIS ;->

An independent benchmark would be great, hopefully by someone other than
ZapThink, as it should be freely available.

Tamino has a pretty great eval version out there,
http://www.xmlstarterkit.com/ : certainly functional enough for

It would be nice if we could find an independent entity to benchmark us
all... I think there are enough of us in the XML DB and XML-enabled DB
market now to submit to an independent benchmark ;->  We've been
building ours since 1997 ;->.

We've spent a lot of our own resources on standalone and competitive
benchmarking (well, against the products we can get a hold of... so far,
we've only been able to do that with the RDBMS vendors... the rest of
you XML DB vendors do not have fully-functional evals like we at eXcelon
do ;->).

If not ZapThink, maybe there's someone else on this list that can
coordinate such an independent benchmark.
