The Process of Mapping XML Data to Relational Databases from MIS Perspective
Dr. Mohammed Alsaigh

XML became the standard for exchanging information over the web, and massive data is used, modified, transferred and stored continuously using XML files. On the other hand, there are huge existing applications and infrastructure which are created for RDBs. Therefore, there is a need for creating processes for mapping this XML data to the Relational databases (RDBs) in order to be used by the existing applications. In this paper, we investigate the literature to extract the factors that may affect the mapping process, and create a model that represent the relationships between these factors from Management Information Systems (MIS) perspective. Then, we combined two existing algorithms proposed by Chaudhuri et al. (2005) and Wang et al. (2009) in order to come up with a new algorithm that considers all extracted factors.
