Oracle XMLDB

Oracle XML DB is a feature of the Oracle Database. It provides a high-performance,
native XML storage and retrieval technology. It fully absorbs the W3C
XML data model into the Oracle Database, and provides new standard access methods for navigating
and querying XML. With Oracle XML DB, you get all the advantages
of relational database technology plus the advantages of XML.
Oracle XML DB is available since Oracle 9i Release 2.

Oracle installs a HTTP and FTP listener in the database running on port 8080/2100.

Since Oracle 10g Rel. 2 there is also a HTTPS listener available.
