Berkeley DB XML is an embedded XML database system based upon Berkeley DB.

XML databases offer a middle ground between the basic key-value databases
and the rigidity of relational databases.

This implementation comes as a simple library and can handle a database in a
single plain file or a few files in a directory. There is no need for a
database server, user management, etc.

There are, AFAIK, no libraries with remotely similar features currently in
Debian.

The bundle has bindings for various languages, including Perl, Python, PHP
and Java. The Perl binding, at least, builds and works well.

J. Koekkoek's package contained some bugs, but these have been fixed
in a new stripped-down package (C++ bindings and utility programs
only) at http://mentors.debian.net/cgi-bin/sponsor-pkglist?action=details;package=dbxml

It seems that one of its dependencies (libdb4.8++-dev) was removed from unstable.

Lars, I compiled your package against libdb5.1++(-dev), and it works great with our application.

I had to change one line in dbxml's configure script to accept db 5.1 in addition to db4.3 to 4.8.

I modified Lars' package to build against Berkeley DB 5.1, converted
it to multi-arch, and submitted it to Debian Mentors:

http://mentors.debian.net/cgi-bin/sponsor-pkglist?action=details;package=dbxml

Since Lars does not have time to maintain this package anymore, he
asked me to be the maintainer.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
I've continued to work on the package, it's currently here:

https://github.com/cajus/dbxml-debian

Known issues:

 * license inspection: every binding carries various licenses, needs
    to be listed in copying.

 * java bindings: not packaged in the moment.

 * PHP bindings: not packagable, because it depends on php-db
    which is not built alongside of libdb*.

 * The test suite is not run during the build.

Even more TODOs: it only builds against xqilla 2.2 series - which is not 
available in unstable as of mid december. Either upstream plans to move to a 
newer version, or it has to be ported, or statically linked, or just not 
packaged.

For my build in an Ubuntu PPA, I added and built against xqilla 2.2 
packages. Porting dbxml to XQilla 2.3 does not seem to be a trivial task.

Unfortunately, it has been a while since Oracle released a new dbxml 
version.
