I hope you'll forgive me for this announcement but I saw eXcelon mentioned
in a couple of messages and given that eXcelon 1.0 is now shipping, I
thought I'd send you directions for downloading it so that you can try it

eXcelon is a high performance, highly scalable XML data server. It's used
to build enterprise XML Web applications and can be used with existing data
sources as a middle-tier application cache or in standalone mode as a
back-end data source. Key features include:

- Support for XML (eXcelon efficiently stores well-formed XML down to the
  element level without requiring prior knowledge of the document schema
- Support for the DOM
- Support for XQL and structural and content indexes
- In-memory distributed XML database
- XML Update grammar to declaratively modify XML documents
- Comprehensive tool suite (including a visual XQL query builder and
  a DCD editor with code generator)

Unlike with the relational approach, eXcelon fully leverages XML flexibility
and extensibility by storing XML in its native format.

You can find the eXcelon evaluation version on the Object Design Web site

Please feel free to contact me if you need additional technical information
regarding eXcelon.

I hope you find this useful

Sorry for the intrusion
