With the rapidly evolving XML technology and thereby ever-increasing number of XML documents, the importance of providing efficient tools for managing these enormous amounts of data is rising every day. Native XML database systems are such tools. Like other XML database systems they need indices in order to provide efficient and fast access to the data. These indices represent redundant data structures in the database and therefore have to be kept consistent, whenever the underlying base data is manipulated.
