XML for Databases

  Posted on Sunday April 30, @04:21AM Pacific
XML Neither SAX nor DOM are well-suited for processing database-generated XML. RAX is a record-oriented API to XML data that reduces the overhead and complexity of handling XML generated from databases. Sean McGrath has put together and article at XML.com entitled RAX: An XML Database API. The article presents a simple, record-oriented API for XML that is suitable for processing database-style XML. The RAX, SAX, and DOM APIs are contrasted with a worked example. An implementation of RAX in Python that is based on the PYX notation introduced in the Pyxie project is also presented.

    RAX (Record API for XML) on the Web at:

    Also writing capabilities have been added so you can now use RAX as a "pull API" for read/write XML applications. Simply put, you can read records, modify them and write them out again as XML.
