A CDE Definition
(Transaction Architecture for the Management of INternet Objects) A native XML database from Software AG, Reston, VA (www.softwareagusa.com) for Windows, Solaris and Linux. The first commercial native XML database, Tamino is based on its X-machine Web server and supports the XQL query language. Its X-node interface provides access to and from legacy databases. See XML database.
A database that stores XML documents. There are two types. The first is the "XML-enabled database," which is a relational or object-oriented database that has been extended to hold XML data. In this method, there is always a conversion to and from the XML document to the underlying structure such as rows and columns in the relational model. In addition, the XML-enabled database may only store part of the XML document.
The second is the "native XML database," which indexes XML documents directly and stores the entire XML document and related elements. Depending on the application, the native XML database may provide better performance than the XML-enabled database.
