Internet explorer tools for validating xml and viewing xsl
You can load XML documents from a local file system into Oracle XML DB Repository using protocols such as Web DAV, from Windows Explorer or other tools that support Web DAV.
Figure 3-1 shows a simple drag and drop operation for copying the contents of the data.
However, the majority of techniques introduced here can also be used to manage other types of XML documents, such as those containing unstructured or semi-structured data.
This chapter also further explains Oracle XML DB concepts introduced in Chapter 1, "Introduction to Oracle XML DB".
See When loading large XML files consisting of a collection of smaller XML documents, it is often more efficient to use Simple API for XML (SAX) parsing to break the file into a set of smaller documents, and then insert those documents.
SAX is an XML standard interface provided by XML parsers for event-based applications.
This approach applies only to XML data that is stored as binary XML.
For XML data that uses unstructured storage, the database has no knowledge of the XML structure —the data is treated as flat text, but for binary XML storage that structure is known.
In a production environment, follow the Oracle Database password management guidelines, and disable any sample accounts.Examples include registering an XML schema and performing an XSL transformation.
