Realtime Access Map
Level based labeling scheme for extensible markup language (XML) data processing
With the continuous growth of data in businesses and the increasing demand for reaching that data immediately, raised the need of having real time data warehouses. In order to provide such a system, the ETL mechanism will need to be very efficient on updating data. From the literature surveys, it has been observed that there are many studies performed on efficient update of the relational data, while there is limited amount of study on updating the XML data. With the extensible structure and effective performance on data exchange, the usage of XML data structure is increasing day by day. Like relational databases, real time XML databases also need to be updated continuously. The hierarchic characteristic of XML required the usage of tree representations for indexing the data since they provide necessary means to capture different relationships between the nodes. The principal purpose of this study is to define and compare algorithms which label the XML tree with an effective update mechanism. Proposed labeling algorithms aim to provide a mechanism to query and update the XML data by defining all relations between the nodes. In the experimental evaluation part of this thesis, all algorithms is examined and tested with an existing labeling algorithm.
