The changes that can be made to a document throughout its lifetime are limitless. Temporal management of documents with multiple versions is a complex area of research that has risen from the need to preserve information. Today’s technology-driven society is rapidly moving towards web environments and using XML as the format of choice of information representation and exchange. The proposed solutions is an implementation of a temporal XML version management system that stores and reconstructs multiple versions of XML documents, as well as provide temporal query capabilities that show how the document has changed over time.
