As the research work about XML based on the development of Internet and according to the information exchange standard is being carried out, the need of discovering new methods to store XML documents and manage them efficiently according to the frequency of large-capacity XML documents increases. Consequently, as a kind of back-end database system, XML storage systems such as RDBMS, OODBMS and Native XML DBMS etc. are coming forth in order to save XML documents. It is an urgent task to make comparisons among usage expense, function comparison storage, inquiry, and manage dimension for each DBMS. This paper makes an analysis and comparison of DTD-independent XML document access methods in RDBMS, OODBMS and Native XML DBMS for XML storage and management. After analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of each access method and comparing the function of typical commerce DBMS such as Oracle 8i, eXcelon and Tamino for finding the possibility of military applications, an another appropriate method to save XML documents is proposed as to find an implementation approach to save structural XML documents.
