There have been several techniques proposed for building
statistics for static XML data. However, very little work

data sources that export XML views of data that is stored in
relational or other databases. For such data sources, we need
statistics that are built in an on-line manner, by observing
the XML queries to the data sources and their results. In
this paper, we present a technique for building on-line XML
statistics by observing the XPath queries issued to a data
source and their result sizes. These XPath queries select
parts of the virtual XML document representing the XML
view of the data at the data source. We convert these XPath
