Sedna - Native XML Database System

Full-featured native XML DBMS with support for the W3C XQuery language.

XML is standard for storing and exchanging information in the Web. In order to facilitate work with big amount of XML data we developed special DBMS system that is called Sedna.

Sedna is a free native XML database, which provides a full range of core database services – persistent storage, ACID transactions, security, indices, and hot backup. Flexible XML processing facilities include W3C XQuery implementation, tight integration of XQuery with full-text search facilities and a node-level update language.

As demonstration of Sedna work, you can see our WikiXMLDB project.
