dbXML is an XML Database Application Server. It serves two purposes: As a Database Server, dbXML natively stores and indexes compressed XML documents in order to provide that data to a client application with no server-side processing overhead. It also provides functionality that is unique to XML data and can't easily be reproduced by relational databases. As an Application Server, dbXML provides business logic and transformation capabilities. The dbXML Application layer is tightly interwoven with the Database layer, providing fast execution, the ability to provide real-time distributed replication for both databases and applications, and the ability to personalize content at the database layer.
