Company NameXindice (Retired)
Big Data Landscape CategoryXML Databases
Apache Xindice is a retired Apache Software Foundation XML database that allows users to store XML data without having to map to any other kind of structure. Xindice is built on an independent model that favors the semi-structured construct of XML data, and provides a level of flexibility not available in many other types of data structures. Though it is possible to use a variety of languages in Xindice (via an XML-RPC API), the database has two native languages: XML DB XUpdate (an update language) and Xpath (a query language).
Apache Xindice was retired and placed in the Apache Attic by the Apache Software foundation. However, the Apache Xindice website remains up, as do its downloads and an issue tracker. Archived versions of Xindice are available for download from Apache Software.
