IBM Goes XML in next Gen Database

Steve Castledine  December 9 2004 02:20:58 PM
I picked up on a feature at the register today regarding IBM's plans for its next generation database.

IBM announced its next generation database. The big news is that this will not be a relational database. Or, to be more accurate, it will not just be a relational database.

IBM has concluded, rightly in my view, that using a relational approach is not adequate for processing XML. Either you store it in relational format, in which case you get a major performance hit because you have to convert it to and from tabular format whenever you store or retrieve it, or you have to store it as a binary large object, in which case you can’t do any processing with it.

So, using relational storage is inadequate for one reason or another, and IBM has concluded that another approach is necessary. The company’s next generation database will therefore have two storage engines: one relational store and one native XML store. And let me be quite clear about this: these engines will be completely separate, with separate tablespaces, separate indexes (Btrees and so forth on the one hand, and hierarchical on the other), and so on.

Sounds interesting stuff, and I've still got to delve into the depths that is Cloudscape - IBM's open standards/open source database that can be used with Eclipse/workplace etc. Its footprint is a tiny 2MB! -  I for one am very excited by IBM's direction - I will be doing a lot of research over the next few months on all the new stuff and I will post my findings here.

I hadn't come across that - I must add it to my research list - I've used mySQL (I need to brush up on this again) - I keep meaning to write some articles on it to help me regain my knowledge.

Its all part of my "consultant" thing - good to have a few options available in terms of database - at all cost levels - I will get round to emailing you this weekend re previous posts!

Hi Steve,

did u consider having a look at MaxDB (run by mySQL)? They got stored procedures and triggers and a Oracle like PL/SQL support.

Also Berkeleydb/XML is worth a shot (if your software is open source otherwise a bit expensive).
