Have you ever written an XQuery against the XML data type and had performance issues? Have you ever wondered how to improve performance of your XML-based application? In this presentation, we analyze commonly encountered query patterns and performance issues and provide best practices and improved queries that can improve performance up to an order of magnitude. We provide guidance on how to best store XML inside the database (relational vs. as XML datatype, with or without a schema, which XML Index should I use?) and provide performance tips when using XQueries and FOR XML queries. In addition, we give a quick preview of a new XML Indexing option that we have been developing for one of our premier banking ISVs which will be productized in a future release. #TEDBI404
