   "Types" of XML (Was Re: [xml-dev] XML database enviroment using PostgreS

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yes, but one may say "I store my XML documents that I receive from my
trading partners in a relational database", thereby blurring the line
with record-like. How about "publishing-oriented" and
"exchange-oriented", as I recommended in a previous posting?

I would also assert that there is a "hybrid" type, in which electronic
documents (such as e-forms) use XML as their "backend"
("publishing-oriented"), and subsequently produce XML documents that are
then transmitted to trading partners ("exchange-oriented"), thus
blurring the line even further.
