XQuery By Example: Building an Email Archive System
The classic searchable email archive system is cluged together -- a frankenstein monster combining a relational database with a search engine, with Java just barely able to keep the two together. In this talk we'll demonstrate how email is more content than data, how it's better encoded in XML rather than relational tables, and how Java can convert emails to XML and drive an XQuery backend to produce a simpler and more scalable email archive system.
Attendees should be familiar with XML and have an interest in text search and back-end architecture design.
