Berkeley DB XML 2.5
By Gregory Burd on Sep 14, 2009
Today is a big day for Berkeley DB products. Not only are we releasing a new version of Berkeley DB, but we also are announcing the availability of a new version of Berkeley DB XML. This release makes use of the new features in Berkeley DB 4.8 and has many exciting features of its own.
New in Berkeley DB XML 2.5:
- Berkeley DB XML will guess what indexes might speed up your queries based on XML document shape and content anticipating potential query patterns and pre-indexing them to speed up query execution and lower developer effort.
- 30% reduction of XML database containers on disk using the new Berkeley DB Compression APIs and a custom compression algorithm optimized for XML data.
- New XQuery extension support enabling integration with XQuery scripting services.
