Using Statistical Information for Efficient Design and Evaluation of Hybrid XML Storage
Keywords: XML, Hybrid XML management, indexing, storage design.
Modern relational database management systems provide hybrid XML storage, combining relational and native technologies. Hybrid storage offers many design alternatives for XML data. In this paper we explore how to aid the user in effective design of hybrid storage. In particular we investigate how the XML schema and statistical information about the data can support the storage design process. In our previous work, we presented our tool HShreX that uses statistical information about a data set to enable fast evaluation of alternative hybrid design solutions. In this paper, we extend this work by presenting more details about the tool and results of an extended evaluation. In particular, this paper gives a detailed presentation on how the tool aids in the storage design and evaluation process.
