An XML benchmark is a specification of a set of meaningful and relevant tasks, intended to assess the functionality and/or performance of an XML processing tool or system. The benchmark must specify the following: (i) a deterministic workload, consisting of a set of XML documents and/or a procedure for obtaining these and a set of operations to be performed; (ii) detailed rules for executing the workload and making the measurements; (iii) the metrics used to report the results of the benchmark; and (iv) standard ways of interpreting the results.
XML has quickly become the preferred format for representing and exchanging data on the Web age. The level of acceptance of XML is astonishing, especially when one considers that this technology was introduced only in 1997. XML is an enabling technology with applications in virtually all domains of information processing. At the time of writing, XML is widely used in content distribution on the Web (e.g., RSS...
