Abstract

XML has become a key technology for interoperability, providing a common data model to applications. However, diverse data modeling choices may lead to heterogeneous XML structure and content. In this paper, information retrieval and database-related techniques have been jointly applied to effectively tolerate XML data diversity in the evaluation of flexible queries. Approximate structure and content matching is supported via a straightforward extension to standard XPath syntax. Also, we outline a query execution technique representing a first step toward efficiently addressing structural pattern queries together with predicate support over XML elements content.
