XML is emerging as a major standard for representing data on the World-Wide-Web. Recently, many XML storage models have been proposed to manage XML data. We propose several benchmarks including XMark and XMach in order to assess an XML database's abilities to deal with XML queries. We report our first set of results on benchmarking a set of XML database implementations using two XML benchmarks. In general, XML data can be managed as text files, by existing DBMSs, or by the so-called native XML engines. We implemented three XML database systems. VXMLR, and XParent were built on top of RDBMS, and XBase was implemented as a native XML engine. For each approach, variations on schema mapping and storage methods were also implemented for comparison.
