XML Structural Similarity Search Using MapReduce
XML is a de-facto standard for web data exchange and information representation. Efficient management of these large volumes of XML data brings challenges to conventional technique. To cope with large scale data, MapReduce computing framework as an efficient solution has attracted more and more attention in the database community recently. In this paper, an efficient and scalable framework is proposed for XML structural similarity search on large cluster with MapReduce. First, sub-structures of XML structure are extracted from large XML corpus located on a large cluster in parallel. Then Min-Hashing and locality sensitive hashing techniques are developed on the distributed and parallel computing framework for efficient structural similarity search processing.
