Q

What is XML indexing?

What is XML indexing? I heard that XML indexing will make the XPath expression evaluation faster. How does it work?
Just like indexing in databases, indexing of XML data makes it faster to execute certain queries. The trick, as with databases, is to create indexes that reflect the commonly used search patterns.
