Reports for Information in Native XML Format

January 20, 2009

Recently, a few clients have asked about using commercial Business Intelligence (BI) software to generate reports for information that is stored in native XML format. I received these requests from clients with data-centric XML-based applications, where they want to generate reports against transactional data. For DB2 pureXML, there are a few possible approaches to generating such reports. See the following two articles for more information:
