LinuxPR: Version 0.9 of free XML database released

Nov 08, 1999, 17:36 (0 Talkback[s])

"Bowerbird Computing has released version 0.9 of XDBM, a free software XML database manager."

"XDBM is an embedded database that can be included in individual programmes. It is not an enormous Oracle 8i style database server, it allows individual programmes to more easily use the XML files they produce."

"There are currently many libraries available that can manipulate XML, but they all have three shortcomings: They are slow because they need to read the entire file to find out what it contains; They do not supply any way to search an XML file; and they consume a lot of memory because they need to load all the parts of the file required right from the start."
