USING SQL/XML FOR EFFICIENTLY TRANSLATING QUERIES OVER XML VIEW OF RELATIONAL DATA

Fernando Lemos, Clayton Costa, Vânia Vidal

Abstract

XML and Web services are becoming the standard means of publishing and integrating data over the Web. A convenient way to provide universal access (over the Web) to different data sources is to implement Web services that encapsulate XML views of the underlying relational data (Data Access Web Services). Given that most business data is currently stored in relational database systems, the generation of Web services for publishing XML view of relational data has special significance. In this work, we propose RelP, a framework for publishing and querying relational databases through XML views. The main contribution of the paper is an algorithm that translates XML queries over a published XML view schema into a single SQL/XML query over the data source schema.
