+1. I am thinking that javadoc for XML type related classes needs a good architecture about RDBMS centric architecture, considerations about XML population of RDBMS data and required performance considerations; a table about where it is good to use and where not, and why. John

"XML data type" page in ref needs some modifications

                Key: DERBY-4623
                URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-4623
            Project: Derby
         Issue Type: Bug
         Components: Documentation
   Affects Versions:,,,,,,,,,
           Reporter: C.S. Nirmal J. Fernando
           Assignee: C.S. Nirmal J. Fernando
           Priority: Trivial

I think this page need some more explanation on areas such as:

   1) Setting paths of xercesImpl.jar and xalan.jar in the CLASSPATH
   2) Command that user should use to start the Derby i.e. java org.apache.derby.tools.ij
   3) Mention that user needed to create a table which contains XML data type column/s, because users might thought that they can retrieve XML data from an any table.
   4) Mention the requirements that are needed when inserting values to a XML data typed column, i.e. need of XML keywords document & preserve whitespace, tags etc.
   5) A small example which is clearly shows the creation, insertion & selection using XML data type.
