Hi,

  I want to create and use a XML database for a web application and I want it to work as a distributed database where it can be used and updated by different users.

 I have never worked with a XML database so I am not sure if it is the best option for what I need and describe above

Thanks in advance

Do you want to have a ditributed XML DB or an XML DB that is updated by distributed users ? I think the latter, 'cause the first would not be so easy. For a free XML DB I can suggest eXist (http://www.exist-db.org). In order to query an XML DB you will have to use XQuery. Don't expect speed (the DB is done in Java) and it works with XML ....
