Re: [xml-dev] Caught napping!

You are sure to be impressed with what we've been working
on in the XML Schema, XMLType, Oracle database integration
space. As soon as I'm able to say something publically about
what we've been working on for the last two years in this
area, xml-dev will be the first to know. Suffice it to say
that the XMLType functionality and the XPath-integrated-with-SQL
functionality in the current production Oracle9i release (described
in a recent Oracle Magazine article 
is the tip of a large iceberg of functionality in this space.
Deep XML Schema integration and harmonization with our existing
object/relational data model should give you a hint what we've
been up to.

All I can say for the moment...
