Most organizations are using XML as the data exchange format over the Internet. Consequently, some are beginning to store data in the native XML database. Unfortunately, as to date, there is no suitable mechanism for intuitively modeling the components of XML conceptually. The area of designing conceptual modeling techniques for XML is still not adequately explored in literature. As such, in this paper, the authors proposed a novel XML conceptual modeling technique, which they named as X-CM (XML Conceptual Modeling).
