Several people asked me this so rather than responding individually I
just wrote up some thogughts and put them here:
The final word on this subject has not yet been written, but I think
this is a decent summary of what's available in the native XML DB space
as of August, 2007.
Roughly I think we're where SQL was in 1995: some good payware products
and some iffy but promising open source options. I expect the open
source options will improve into production worthy systems with time,
just as MySQL and PostgresQL did over the last decade.
