Proposal:
EIMS (http://epa.gov/eims) is a web-accessible EPA catalog of projects
and products. We have been accepting XML documents from a variety of
sources into our relational database.
Since our database schema is fixed, but the XML schemas vary widely, we
have specified a target (Dublin Core+) schema as a target for
submission.
We describe design choices made when choosing this solution and actual
problems and challenges experienced in our first large trial.
