Extensible Mark-up Language was designed to carry data which provides a platform to define own tags. XML documents are immense in nature. As a result there has been an ever growing need for developing an efficient storage structure and high-performance techniques to query efficiently. QUICX (Query and Update Support for Indexed and Compressed XML) is the compact storage structure which gives highest compression ratio than many of the queriable compressors available today. The data are compressed using LZW approach, and stored compactly. Indexing is done for the data stored in the containers, there by further increasing the compression ratio.
