XML has or will invade your database, due to business needs, e.g. XBRL, driven by desire for SOA architectures or progressive minded developers. Oracle has adapted and implemented functionality to support this need via Oracle XMLDB. A new performance challenge has been born.
Probably without realizing it, we have all the tools at hand, in our heads and via the more traditional way of approaching this challenge, to make XML actually work in our database.
This presentation will show and demonstrate, in detail, how you can use your relational knowledge to master and make this XML beast perform the way you want it. The cool thing about it; XML knowledge is not required. Isn't it data after all?
Or...as Chris Date mentioned during his Hotsos Symposium 2009 keynote address: "The foundation is there so why not use it?"
