I've just released XML-DBMS version 2.0, alpha 3. You can find this on
the XML-DBMS Web site:
The major new functionality in this release is a map generation tool
that can start with an XML-DBMS map, a DTD, or a database schema and
generate an XML-DBMS map, a DTD, or a set of CREATE TABLE statements.
Note that you do not need to be an XML-DBMS user to use this tool -- you
can use this tool to generate a database schema from a DTD and vice
versa. For complete details, see the description of the MapManager class
in the readme file.
