By relying on relational engines for storage purposes, XML developers can benefit from a complete set of data management services and from the highly optimized relational query processors. However, due to the mismatch between the XML and the relational models and the many different ways to map an XML document into relations, it is very hard to tune a relational engine and ensure that XML queries will be evaluated efficiently. This paper presents the LegoDB system, which is aimed at automatically providing XML developers with an efficient storage solution that is tuned for the given application.
