View update is the problem of translating an update to a view to some updates to the source data of the view. In this paper, we formally define the problem, show the factors determining XML view update translation, and propose a translation solution for two specific but typical settings of the view update problem. We prove that the translated source updates are precise and they generalize the solutions to the problem with similar settings in the relational database.
