    Smile xml in DB


    I suggest that you can store xml data(ie. marked-up data)
    in any DB (like Oracle or sql server).

    The security is the same.

    Re: xml in db


    Well,

    first generate some XML like;

    <DATE>20010222</DATE>

    and then store it in the appropriate database field.
    Alternatively, you could store the data as simple text strings and 'markup' the data later when it is extracted from the database(ie. add the XML tags later)

    I'm not sure that I'm answering your question properly though.

    I guess it really depends on the type of database. If you want to preserve the heirarchical structure of your data, you will need to either map your xml data to a Relational Database, or use an Object Oriented Database.

    Check out: http://www.xml.com/pub/rg/34 for a resource. The page has links to several articles and products relating to XML data storage.
