XML has recently emerged as the leading medium for data storage and data transfer over the World Wide Web due to its adaptable structure and flexibility in defining the tags. Many organizations had adopted XML as the principal facet in their online business applications. On the other hand, relational database is still widely used as the back-end database in most organizations. The diversity of these models need to be taken into account to ensure transparent and seamless integration. In this paper, we propose s-XML, an effective mapping scheme to bridge XML and relational database. Experimental results indicate that (1) s-XML is robust in terms of database storage and data loading; (2) s-XML processes query efficiently for complex chain and twig queries; and (3) s-XML is able to support large and skew-structured dataset as compared to relational DTD, Attribute and Edge approaches.
