Re: [xml-dev] What is the general direction you are seeing these days to store and query lots of large complex XML?

Depends on project timescales, budget and risk, and possibly on availability of expertise and experience in particular technologies. Probably one of the following alternatives:

(A) Start a prototyping project to assess whether MarkLogic is capable of meeting the project requirements.

(B) Choose three native XML databases that look promising and assess each of the three to compare how well they handle the project requirements.
