XML Repository System Using DBMS and IRS Kang, Hyung-Il; Yoo, Jae-Soo; Lee, Byoung-Yup;
In this paper, we design and implement a XML Repository System(XRS) that exploits the advantages of DBMSs and IRSs. Our scheme uses BRS to support full text indexing and content-based queries efficiently, and ORACLE to store XML documents, multimedia data, DTD and structure information. We design databases to manage XML documents including audio, video, images as well as text. We employ the non-composition model when storing XML documents into ORACLE. We represent structured information as ETID(Element Type Id), SORD(Sibling ORDer) and SSORD(Same Sibling ORDer). ETID is a unique value assigned to each element of DTD. SORD and SSORD represent an order information between sibling nodes and an order information among the sibling nodes with the same element respectively. In order to show superiority of our XRS, we perform various experiments in terms of the document loading time, document extracting time and contents retrieval time. It is shown through experiments that our XRS outperforms the existing XML document management systems. We also show that it supports various types of queries through performance experiments.
