Hi List,

I was wondering what strategies people are using to handle large volumes of XML 

How do you store the data? e.g.: Text-files, databases (which one)...?
How big are your datasets? e.g.: MB, GB, TB...?
What do you use to query the data? e.g.: PHP w/ text-files, SQLServer with "for 
xml" clause...?

Finally, what limitations do you experience currently when handling XML?

Take a look at openstreetmap.org
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/index.php/Planet is several GB of XML data.
The only way of handling it to use it IS via a database, and it has scripts to dump it to various databases.
So what large volume are you thinking about?
