Re: [xml-dev] XML Database Decision Tree?

Well, by that argument, all data everywhere should always be stored in
nothing but RDBMS's.  Tell me, is the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet
program based on an RDBMS?

				There is no vendor
   out there who is ready to fill the shoes
   of an Oracle or a SQL Server or a DB2.

So what you're saying is that none of the native XML database systems
are likely to replace the major RDBMS's, for doing the things that the
major RDBMS's are designed to do and have been engineered to do.  I
certainly agree with you there.
