Compression of Probabilistic XML documents


Veldman, Irma (2009) Compression of Probabilistic XML documents. [Report]

open access
Abstract:Probabilistic XML (PXML) files resulting from data integration can become extremely large, which is undesired. For XML there are several techniques available to compress the document and since probabilistic XML is in fact (a special form of) XML, it might benefit from these methods even more. In this research we search for compression mechanisms that are available for XML and implement one of them to customize it with respect to the properties of probabilistic XML. Experiments show that there is no significant improvement for combinations of traditional mechanisms with techniques that are specially designed for probabilistic XML.
