Abstract

XML has become the dominant standard for data exchange and representation on the Web. The Relational Database (RDB) possesses is widely used as a storage and retrieval medium in the business field. With the expanding utilization of XML data on the Web, the size of this data type has increased rapidly, and more complicated queries are issued by users through this data. This expansion has prompted numerous researchers to propose various approaches in managing XML data through RDB. In this study, the most cited and the latest model-mapping approaches are reviewed in terms of the description, the technique used and the RDB schema produced using each approach. The limitations of these approaches are discussed, in terms of the storage space and query response time. At the end of this study, a solution to these limitations is proposed. It is hoped that this paper will give some insight into storing XML documents in RDB schema and contribute to the XML community.
