Now-a-days a large amount of data is being stored in XML documents. Since XML documents are semi structured and also they require large amount of storage space, there has always been a demand of storing them in specific patterns and automation for mining association rules and patterns in XML documents. Summarized representation of XML data, based on the concept of Tree Based Association Rules (TARs). TARs will not only provide one the information about the structure of the XML document but also the contents stored in the documents. This knowledge gained from TARs will help them fetching intentional knowledge and quick answers to queries.
