In Part 2 of this series, learn about mining association rules from XML documents. Mining association rules from XML documents is different from mining rules from relational data. Information can be structured differently in XML because of the language's flexibility and hierarchical organization. This article also introduces the notion of dynamic association rules. You'll explore an approach to mining XML association rules when the underlying XML documents change without a full re-run of the association rules discovery algorithm.
