Compacting XML Structures Using a Dynamic Labeling Scheme
Due to the growing popularity of XML as a data exchange and storage format, the need to develop efficient techniques for storing and querying XML documents has emerged. A common approach to achieve this is to use labeling techniques. However, their main problem is that they either do not support updating XML data dynamically or impose huge storage requirements. On the other hand, with the verbosity and redundancy problem of XML, which can lead to increased cost for processing XML documents, compaction of XML documents has become an increasingly important research issue. In this paper, we propose an approach called CXDLS combining the strengths of both, labeling and compaction techniques. Our approach exploits repetitive consecutive subtrees and tags for compacting the structure of XML documents by taking advantage of the ORDPATH labeling scheme. In addition it stores the compacted structure and the data values separately. Using our proposed approach, it is possible to support efficient...
