XML has become a widely accepted data format for exchange and representation of semi-structured data. Efficiently managing XML as well as traditional business documents and content in an integrated fashion is a necessity for companies to be successful in the e-generation. Many projects [14], [15], [18] have been developed for managing XML documents. Nevertheless, these projects focus mainly on storing, searching, and retrieving XML documents. No solution has been proposed to manage and query both the XML documents and other traditional text and media data in an integrated fashion. In this paper, we present our research effort in building an XML document management system that manages both XML and non-XML content in a uniform way. Our focus is not only on managing XML documents, but also on providing a uniform view of and integrated access to XML and non-XML documents.
