I updated the XPath benchmark
(http://staff.science.uva.nl/~francesc/xpathmark/) according to some of the
comments I have received from Saxon people. In particular, the major changes
are as follows:
1) Query Q21, which was problematic because of the format of the output,
has been slightly modified.
2) Whitespaces that are not expected in the query result have been removed
from the results of the queries. The format of the result of each query is
now the same you obtain running Saxon with the serialization parameter
'!indent=no' (and without wrapping).
3) A version of the benchmark including a DTD has been added. In order to
declare in the DTD only the elements of the benchmark, the benchmark
documents and the
query results have been encapsulated into a CDATA section. Moreover, the DTD
for the XMark target document has been included.
4) The technical report describing the benchmark has been updated with
about the evaluation methodology. In particular, several performance
evaluated an XML engine have been proposed.
My next task is to evaluate Galax and Saxon according to such an evaluation
Any comment is always welcome.
