whats the difference? how i can specify a node reference?
An XML database stores XML documents in collections. A relational database stores tuples (rows) in tables.
You’ll have to give a little more context before I’ll know just what you mean by “node reference”.
In a relational database you have the concept of foreign key, where you specify a row in a X table that have “relation” with other row in a Y table.
How can i do that in a XML database? is that possible?
In the Schema Editor Tool, i saw that i can specify a reference (in the physical properties of an item (element, attribute, etc.)). The question is, it can help me to specify a kind of “relation” with some node in a document?
please refer to “tsd:nodeRef” in “Tamino XML Schema Reference Guide”
I’ve read the reference guide and i stil do not understand how to define that “node reference”
do you have some examples?
It could be great, thanks.
I’m defining a schema that will be store documents like
doctype = Person:
doctype = Address:Street ...
How i define a nodeRef between the node “address” in the document “Person” and the document “Address” ???
“dereference” in true means that if i make a query to “Person” i will get something like thisName Street ...
the node address dereferenced, is that right?
