Document of Unit Size (Scaling Factor 1.0)

For your convenience, we provide a ready-made document for a 100 MB experiment. To save bandwidth, it has been compressed with gzip. However, it is still quite large (38 MB) -- so if you are on a slow connection, you might prefer to generate the document with one of the binaries above or compile the source.

Queries and DTD

The benchmark queries are formulated in XQuery, a W3C effort to propose a consensus query language tailored towards the distributed XML documents (See xmlquery.txt). The benchmark DTD can be used initialize the database if necessary.
