The pureXML® feature of IBM® DB2® 9 has revolutionized support for XML data—handling XML as a new data type that is stored in a natural hierarchy—different from relational data. IBM Data Studio can create Data Web Services with multiple pureXML parameters to manipulate pureXML instances in the database. With the pureXML support in XML Forms Generator (XFG), you can visualize pureXML into an XHTML-based XForm for users. Also, XFG can retrieve the registered related XML Schemas of pureXML instances and generate type information and validation constraints into the target pureXML XHTML/XForm. So pureXML support in XFG makes it easy to build forms interfaces for XML instances stored in pureXML.
