XQuare Bridge: extending relational databases with XQuery and XML-relational mapping Introduction The new generation of Enterprise Application Integration tools, B-to-B e-commerce platforms, Web Services, Workflow Messaging Systems and document management tools all generate and exchange information in XML format. Establishing data exchange between these platforms and an existing relational database is difficult due to the differences in the structure and type of the data involved. Projects quickly become bogged down in extensive conversion work between the relational world and the XML world. XQuare Bridge eases the transformation between XML documents and existing relational databases by supporting: XQuery-based extraction of relational data, their transformation into XML format and the insertion (or loading) of the XML data into relational database tables while respecting the existing schema. This functionality is provided by the component with a maximum of flexibility and openness to incremental improvements.
