Hi all,
I just got in on the tail end of the conversation so excuse if this has 
already been discussed -
I have found quite a few articles, but none that really go over the pros 
and cons of both systems. I have downloaded Xindice, Exist, Berkeley XML DB 
and Tamino and plan over the next 2 months to bang on these systems quite a 
bit (I'm in grad school and using this for a project)...I'll let you all 
know if we find any other pros about the Exist system. One thing that does 
come to mind is that Exist is *supposed* to handle storage larger documents 
than Xindice, but as another person pointed out, the performance searching 
these documents could be quite slow. I did just go through the installation 
process for Exist; It was quite uneventful when running it inside of Tomcat 
(they have a .war file on the web)...but only Tomcat 4.x. I couldn't get it 
to work in 5.x.
