XML has been embraced as a vehicle for structuring and encoding data for interchange. However, much work remains to be done for XML to provide real impact in the data management domain. In particular, there is a definite need for robust database engines to process XML data efficiently. In this talk, I will provide an overview of IBM's view of the role of XML in enabling information integration and a high-level architecture of XML processing. With this architecture as a background, I will describe two research projects in my group, XMLshred and Label-tree. The XMLshred project addresses the issue of efficient shredding of input XML documents based on schema. XMLshred identifies path expressions from a given mapping, generates shred trees, and uses these trees for efficient shredding. The Label-tree is an auxiliary data structure that enables maintenance of order in documents in the presence of updates. I will describe the issues, the main design elements of the Label-tree, and its use for order maintenance in the presence of updates.
