Hi Erice,

You could consider to install an RDF-datastore like Sesame[1] and query
it using an RDF-specific query language, but that's the easy part. The
hardest part of the work, I think, will be the integration of the
graph-like or table-like query results with the tree-like XML data. One
option would be to transform the query results from the RDF-datastore to
an XML-format. Whether this is a good option depends on the type of
application that you have in mind, I guess.

Regards,

Arjohn
