Type: task
Description: Try using an xml database as storage
Status: New
Priority: 5


Semi-structured data is often stored in an xml database.

It would be an interesting (but low priority) experiment to try using an xml database as our storage system.

This would override Swank::Storage and probably Swank::Lucene as well, if the database provide good search capabilities.  The parsing still needs to be factored out of Swank::Storage.

eXist looks like a fairly good and relatively easy to use XML database.  It also uses Lucene for full text seaches, which might make migration easier.
