Finally a column on XML storage

After several months of headfakes, I finally did a column on XML storage this month. There turned out to be room for application discussion, but not for much technical nitty-gritty.

The app discussion is pretty consistent with what I’d already posted here, although I wish I’d gone into more detail on the inventory database example. (Stay tuned for followup here!)

I also intend to post soon with some technical detail about how XML storage is actually handled.

I also got some good insight from Marklogic about what customers wanted in their text-centric markets. More on that soon too.

And by the way — I didn’t pick the Oracle-bashing title. I also didn’t pick the Oracle-bashing title for my Network World “Hot Seat” video. But somehow, the Oracle-doubting parts of my views are of special interest to my friends in the media. And it’s not as if the titles say anything I actually disagree with …

    […] So what do I think about all this? Well, it all sounds pretty smart. But that’s what one would expect me to think. Historically I’ve been a huge fan of Oracle’s text-search-in-SQL, OLAP-in-SQL, and so on. And generally I’ve turned out to be rather lonely in my enthusiasm. So on this one, while the story certainly sounds good, I think I’ll wait and see if Oracle can do a better job of being fully competitive than it did in those other areas. Also, I’d be more inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt if they hadn’t allowed themselves to fall behind in supporting XML. […]
