Thanks for the reply.I did a bit over the weekend. Getting closer to the goal. Will keep you posted.

Why MongoDB? Because of the unstructured format of the data which has to be plotted against multiple xml(s) and also the huge amount of data handling. Relational DBs, if used, will have the complexity of tweaking to a huge extent.
