Technical Aspects of XML Format – Case Study - Differences between Saving Data into Element and Attribute

Ondřej Bureš

Abstract

XML technology is used for data transmission on daily basis. While processing huge files, every millisecond per node can play its part in the process. In total time it can lead to extending the whole procedure by minutes or even tens of minutes which can make it very ineffective in matter of time and cost. Goal of this study is to put saving data into elements in contrast with saving into attributes of XML files and compare final results. In order to receive the best overview, three applications in different selected programming languages were tested and results were compared.
