A simple definition of semi-structured data is data that can’t be organized in relational databases or doesn’t have a strict structural framework, yet does have some structural properties or a loose organizational framework. Semi-structured data includes text that is organized by subject or topic or fits into a hierarchical programming language, yet the text within is open-ended, having no structure itself. A good example of semi-structured data is e-mail – which includes some structured data, like the sender and recipient addresses, but also unstructured data, like the message itself.
