XML is a commonly used and popular representation format and there is an increasing need for efficient storage and retrieval of XML. Available technology for storage and management of XML includes native XML storage and shredding of XML into relational databases. Evaluations show that there is no easy answer on which solution that is most efficient and that the storage needs to be customized depending on the application. In this paper we investigate a third option, storing XML in a navigational database. With this solution the user can customize the underlying representation for the XML document. We show the feasibility of the approach by giving an overview of our first experimental evaluation with the tool. Our impression of the solution is that it offers an efficient and easy to use storage model for XML.
