Hello XML experts,
I'm involved in a project to develop a medical
database for clinical images. We are considering Filemaker 6.0 (which is for
the non-professional, much like Access, but has the ability to export and
import XML). I understand all the big guys too handle XML. But someone told me
that XML itself CAN be used as a database. Then I heard about "Native XML
Databases" or NXDs. But reading further I got confused. There seem to be 2
camps: those in favor of traditional databases with XML support, and the pure
What would you recommend? Which is better (for
Native XML database
XML-enabled relational database?
Thanks a lot!
