XML-DBMS is an Open Source package for transferring data between XML
documents and relational databases. It views the XML document as a tree of

An XML-based mapping language is used to define the view and map it to the
database. This language is very flexible, allowing users to do basic tasks
such as renaming elements and attributes for storage in the database, as

defining how null data is treated, and defining date formats.
