It's not the database product or the underlying data model that determines what
defines a transaction. Application requirements define transactions. What
defines a cancellation transaction for a hotel reservation system, for example,
is not a function of whether it is using a native XML database or not.
The best measure of transaction processing performance is results using the
actual application. If that information is not available, you can look to
standard benchmarks such as those from the Transaction Processing Council
(www.tpc.org). The TPC benchmarks are used extensively to compare SQL product
performance. Perhaps someone in the native XML world has done something similar.
