Example text

For example, you can view the tree structure of XML documents, create XML indexes with point-and-click into XML documents, design and register XML Schemas, or build XQuery and SQL/XML statements with context assist in Data Studio’s statement editor. 4 BENEFITS OF DB2 PUREXML OVER ALTERNATIVE STORAGE OPTIONS FOR XML DATA Prior to the availability of DB2 pureXML, the two main storage options for XML data in relational databases are LOB storage and shredding: • The LOB storage approach stores full XML documents in their textual form in character or binary large object columns (CLOB or BLOB).

It contains 200 nonwhitespace characters as opposed to 248 in the document without attributes. An XML parser needs to look at every single character of a document, which generally means that shorter documents can be parsed faster. This reduction in parsing times may matter if you are designing an XML message format for very high-volume processing with near real-time performance requirements and throughput targets such as thousands of messages per second. However, many XML applications do not fall into this category and performance should be a secondary concern during XML modeling.

Finally, defining and enforcing constraints, such as uniqueness for a certain attribute, is extremely difficult. Hence, data quality and integrity suffers. Solution with XML data: The beauty of XML is that elements and attributes can be optional, so they are simply omitted if they don’t apply for a specific product. Neither NULL values nor name/value pairs are needed. The XML Schema can define a very large number of optional elements, but only few of them are used for any given object. While every row in a relational table has to have the exact same columns, XML documents in an XML column can have different elements from one row to the next.
