Final Deliverable must B. Application archive ( .war/.ear ) with source code
C. Database backup and DDL Script
D. Complete Source code
Because of the use of XForms which generate XML data as input, its easy to
consume (gather) all user information in a single XML document and store it as
a single entity without breaking it up into pieces as done is case of relational da-
Since the data will be stored in a single XML document, its easy to fetch it using
a simple XQuery without any complex joins
Since the data is stored as XML, it is vey easy to construct SOAP messages
from this XML content as no relational to XML transformation is required.
Use of XSLT to report data in multiple format is now possible because of the
XML data model.
XML Indexes can be used to further increase the XQUERY performance.
Xml functions can be used to query the data efficiently as the data given by do-
Advantages of using DB2
