The figure shows two XML documents at the upper left, as follows:

XML instance document: employees.xml


XML schema: employee.xsd

  <element name="first_name" type="string"/> 
  <element name="last_name" type="string"/> 
  <element name="email" type="string"/> 
  <element name="hire_date" type="date"/>
  <element name="dept_id" type="integer"/> 

There is an arrow from each of the XML documents to a box labeled "Create XMLTYpe Table". From this box there are three arrows, each pointing to a box representing database tables. These three arrows are labeled, from left to right, "Binary XML Storage", "Unstructured Storage", and "Structured Storage". The table boxes are labeled, from left to right, "XML data stored as binary XML", "XML data stored as CLOB instances", and "XML data stored in object-relational columns and tables".

Inside each database-tables box is the label "employees Tables" and a depiction of database columns. The binary XML and unstructured storage boxes show a column labeled "XMLType column". The entries in this column are shown as "Binary XML" and "CLOB", respectively. The structured storage box shows columns labeled "first_name", "last_name", "email", and "dept_id". A row is shown with corresponding entries "shelli", "baida", "sbaida", and "30".
