I would tend to agree with this

I would imagine that parsing the XML file you get once a month and storing the information in *some* kind of "real" database, whether it's oracle, mysql, postgresql or whatever would give you better performance than parsing the XML on each page request. Unless the XML is of a trivial size of course, but I didn't get that impression from the original post.

Just a thought...

Thank you.

I dont think we have the computing power for this project to use Oracle 10g. Also, the system is too big and nobody out here has actual knowledge of Oracle but anyway I will keep it in mind.


Don't know of a suitable XML database to use with PHP, but I could
recommend using Oracle 10g.  There are built in XML services that  should
help with your project.  Furthermore, PHP has a well documented  Oracle
interface (OCI8) just for this.  To handle the XML though, you would
probably need to get to grips with PL/SQL, Oracle's own stored  procedure
and trigger language.  And the best part, you could use OracleXE for
free, although it only gives you a database with up to 4GB user  data, up
to 1GB of RAM and use of only one processor in a multi-processor

Subject: [PHP-DB] PHP with a XML database
Hello all
As part of my research under my professor I have to implement a web
interface to their benchmarking data.
PHP is the chosen web language but we are little worried about the
database. The benchmark data comes to us in XML format (e.g. http://www.matf.bg.ac.yu/~filip/ArgoLib/smt-lib-xml/Examples/ FolEq1.xml)
We have to implement an interface to query them, get data, update  etc.
We even can change schema in the form of attributes. . The data size
would be around 100 MB each XML with around 100 different XMLs.
The load would be max 5-10 users any given time, batch updates once a
month and heavy load prolly 2-3 times a month. Mission criticality is
not important, we can get it down sometimes. Which db would you  suggest?
i did google research and as of now - I like eXist, Sedna (they  seem to
have good PHP wrapper support) and TImber.
Any suggestions?
