Systems for managing and querying semistructured-data sources often store data in proprietary object repositories or in a tagged-text format. We describe a technique that can use relational database management systems to store and manage semistructured data. Our technique relies on a mapping between the semistructured data model and the relational data model, expressed in a query language called STORED. When a semistrcutured data instance is given, a STORED mapping can be generated
