XML Publishing: Bridging Theory and Practice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Transforming relational data into XML, as known as XML publishing, is often necessary when one wants to exchange data residing in databases or to create an XML interface of a traditional database. This paper aims to provide an overview of recent advances in XML publishing. We present a notion of publishing transducers recently developed for studying the expressive power and complexity of XML publishing languages. In terms of publishing transducers we then characterize XML publishing languages being used in practice. In addition, we address dynamic aspects of XML publishing, namely, incremental maintenance and update management of XML views published from relational data.
