You would have a hard time convincing anybody here that XML is particularly good at *anything*. Now, if you want to talk about representing hierarchies in relational databases, there is a lot of sources on the web. It is as good if no better quality than any alternative solution that has XML buzzword attached to it. And, yes, messy technology can't suggest anything any optimization insight, so be prepared to all kinds of performance issues. Received on Mon Nov 10 2008 - 21:32:25 CET
