This paper introduces an XML representation for the parametric data model handling temporal data. The parametric data model represents an object either in a single tuple or in multiple tuples. This feature reduces query complexities at the user level and provides elegant approaches to manage temporal data. However, this property requires the data model to have flexible attribute value sizes and causes the implementation complexity despite its advantages. To solve this problem, parametric databases have to manage variable attribute value sizes, which are in the same attribute field. XML can provide a feasible solution to represent parametric databases. XML does not have any boundary restrictions. In this paper, we introduce an XML representation scheme for the parametric data model and show that the scheme reflects the properties in the parametric data model.
