In this paper, the authors present an approach for transforming an existing XML schema in ODL (Object Definition Language) schemas, the authors chose oriented object database as a target database because there are many common characteristics between XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and object-oriented model, and they desire to have a large number of object-oriented features, (e.g. user-defined data types, inheritance, substitutability, etc.) and a permanent storage of data. Thus the mapping from XML data into object-oriented databases is more interesting; also the object-oriented data bases have become very widespread and acceptable, they offer an evolutionary approach, so they agree that it is time to develop a translation between XML and OO (Object Oriented) databases.
