Hi,
I have an XML document which contains millions of user records from a database. I need to search that XML document ofr a particular user by his name. How would I go about doing it without having to parse through the whole document till I reach the record. Is there some way I can duplicate the functionality of indexing a column in a database by indexing the XML document by the user name? DOM? ???
