There are an increasing number of DBMS vendors thinking of integrating XML data management into traditional relational database, with wider use of XML. In this case, a comprehensive evaluation methodology is needed to evaluate the XML engine in RDBMS correctly. In this paper, the authors analyze the characteristics of XML engine and propose an evaluation strategy of XML engine in a RDBMS. They believe that the evaluation should include functional evaluation and performance evaluation, and cover several major aspects of DB such as storage, query and update.
