   Re: [xml-dev] XML database enviroment using PostgreSQL

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thinking more about the term "record-like" for what is commonly called
"data-oriented" XML: One may run into some disagreement with the notion
that "document-oriented" (or narrative) XML does not involve records (I
am intentionally speaking very generally here). For example, given the
recent Sarbanes-Oxley Act here in the U.S., every "type" of XML is
expected to be record-oriented.
