Stream applications bring the challenge of efficiently processing queries on sequentially accessible XML data streams. In this chapter, the authors study the current techniques and open challenges of XML stream processing. Firstly, they examine the input data semantics in XML streams and introduce the state-of-the-art of XML stream processing. Secondly, they compare and contrast the automatonbased and algebra-based techniques used in XML stream query execution. Thirdly, they study different optimization strategies that have been investigated for XML stream processing - in particular, they discuss cost-based optimization as well as schema-based optimization strategies. Lastly but not least, the authors list several key open challenges in XML stream processing.
