Summary: In recent times, there has been an increasing need to store, retrieve and manipulate documents. To logically structure these, the standards bodies have defined Extensible Markup Language (XML). Successful methods for storage and retrieval of data from XML databases have been developed. The next stage consists of identifying patterns or knowledge in XML data or association rule mining. Association rule mining of XML databases is more complicated than mining relational databases because of the more complex structure of this data. In this project, we develop a framework and algorithms for mining such data. This significantly enhances the value of these large document databases.
