The recent popularity of XML and Web services has lead to a surge in models and platforms for distributed XML data management applications. This work investigates performance issues involved in the deployment of the ActiveXML (AXML) platform for such applications. AXML documents are XML documents, part of which is extensional (present in the document),(More)
Many scientific experiments deal with data-intensive applications and the orchestration of computational workflow activities. These can benefit from data parallelism exploited in parallel systems to minimize execution time. Due to its complexity, robustness and efficiency to exploit data parallelism, grid infrastructures are widely used in some e-Science(More)
Cost parameters and database statistics are the basis of query optimization techniques. However, in distributed and heterogeneous database systems, acquiring and treating information to help the optimization process are often tasks of a global query processor, tailoring these functionalities to a specific system architecture. Moreover, this acquisition(More)
