XML adoption is certainly on the rise. Many people justifiably separate XML use cases into two camps: content-oriented and data-oriented. With increased adoption of industry standards that are based on XML formats (like ACORD for insurance, HL7 for healthcare, FIXML and FpML for financial services, NIEM for government, and many more), there are an increasing number of transactional XML systems in operation. And, as you might expect, these are being closely followed by analytical XML systems (data warehouse systems that work directly with native XML data). These, of course, are primarily in the domain of the data-oriented use cases. I have blogged about a very interesting way that some organizations are taking advantage of the flexibility of XML in a "traditional" database environment at
http://nativexmldatabase.com/2008/09/26/flexible-schemas-when-to-persist-data-in-xml-instead-of-relational/ Such innovative uses of XML are leading to increasing use of XML in data-oriented environments. By the way, DB2 does natively store and manage XML data. It has the ability to render structured data as XML like you describe. But is also has a native XML storage capability called pureXML that IBM spent 5 years building from the ground up and is being used by literally thousands of users today. Internally, DB2 stores XML data in a tree format, and it provides XQuery and SQL/XML interfaces for working with that XML data. [FYI: I am an IBM employee]

Good analysis of XML's evolving role in enterprise data management. However, there are robust commercial XML database alternatives to Mark Logic, including EMC Documentum xDB. A good discussion on the differences between a native XML database, like xDB, and the hybrid XML/relational products can be found at https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-2999.

HTML is the ubiquitous data format for Web pages; most information providers are not even aware that there are other options. But now, with the development of XML, that is about to change. Not only will the choices of data formats become more apparent, but they will become more attractive as well. Although XML succeeds HTML in time, its design is based on SGML, which predates HTML and the Web altogether. SGML was designed to give information managers more flexibility to say what they mean, and XML brings that principle to the Web. Because it allows the development of custom tag sets, we can think of XML as HTML without the "training wheels." In this article, we trace the history and evolution of Web data formats, culminating in XML. We evaluate the relationship of XML, HTML, and SGML, and discuss the impact of XML on the evolution of the Web.

XML changes the world. Not only will the choices of data formats become more apparent, but they will become more attractive as well. Thanks for sharing this valuable content.

Agree with you on the this topic: XML

When you're in not good state and have got no cash to get out from that point, you would have to receive the business loans. Because it will help you emphatically. I get commercial loan every single year and feel myself OK because of this.

For XML to become more than just an idea, tools are needed for authoring , generating, managing and analyzing XML data

"I sought to show the changing balance of planes - from anti-ship torpedo and dive bombers in the early days when the main objective was destroying other ships - to fighter planes, whose main job was to defend against the kamikazes in the final months."

Max, Midway is pretty much the final act of anti-ship carrier warfare, right? If you follow Keegan and Churchill, it's the critical turning point in the Pacfic war - there's a wonderfully readable description of Midway in Keegan's The Price of Admiralty.
