Subject: ANN: PXDB v 0.1 Alpha.
PXDB is a simple application, written in Python. It
takes XML files ( Chunks ) and places them into (any) SQL database. There are
also APIs for querying / altering / deleting / ordering / linking e t.c. PXDB is
like a middle ground between SQL database and XML repository. One can view
PXDB as a strange object database on top of SQL storage, with some elements
of XML (CPath).
It is in alpha. Or maybe pre-alpha. The
purpose is to collect feedback.
No installation instructions yet. But it works, actually.
The implementation is just two short Python files
( PXML.py (13K) and PXDB.py (21K) )
so the lack
of documentation should not be a problem for
more-or-less experienced Python developer.
PS. nxml.zip also contains updated version of
because I first implemented Chunks in Perl -
to Python was unexpected.
