Native XML databases have made significant advancements in the last few years. Their flexibility combined with the powerful XQuery language has made them an ideal solution in the areas of digital publishing, content management, document management, messaging and most recently in metadata management. This presentation will show how the simplicity and elegance of full-stack XML solutions allows developers greater flexibility and allows non-developers a larger role in the software development process.
