Energy Efficient XPath Query Processing on Wireless XML Streaming Data
Keywords:Wireless XML streaming, energy conserving XPath query processing, mobile devices
AbstractAn energy efficient way of disseminating XML data to several mobile clients is broadcast. Information such as alert on emergencies, election results and sporting event results can be of interest to large number of mobile clients. Since eXtensible Markup Language (XML) is widely used for information exchange, wireless information services require an energy efficient XML data dissemination. XML Path (XPath) represents selective data required by mobile clients. XPath query processing involves two performance metrics, namely tune-in time and access time. In this paper, we propose a novel structure for streaming XML data called Path Stream Group Level (PSGL) node by exploiting the tree structure of XML document. It possesses various small indices such as level, child, sibling, attribute, text for selective download of XML data by mobile clients. It organizes data based on the level of XML document tree and groups XML elements with same XML path prefix to conserve battery power at mobile clients. Experimental results show that proposed method has reduced tune-in time when compared with existing approaches. Hence PSGL approach enhances performance with energy conservation for processing various types of XPath queries.
