Conceptual Modeling for XML: A Survey

Martin Nečaský


Recently XML is the standard format used for the exchange of data between information systems and is also frequently applied as a logical database model. If we use XML as a logical database model we need a conceptual model for the description of its semantics. However, XML as a logical database model has some special characteristics which makes existing conceptual models as E-R or UML unsuitable. In this paper, the current approaches to the conceptual modeling of XML data are described in an uniform style. A list of requirements for XML conceptual models is presented and described approaches are compared on the base of the requirements.
