Description The original Cornetto project started to develop a new complex-structured lexicon for the Dutch language. The lexicon building process works with information from two current electronic dictionaries -- the Referentie Bestand Nederlands (RBN), which contains FrameNet-like structures, and the Dutch wordnet (DWN) with the usual wordnet structures. The resulting Cornetto lexicon is stored in a system called Cornetto database, which is built over the Dictionary Editor and Browser platform. In this paper, we describe a transition of the Cornetto database system to a new database backend based on large set of tests that were run on four selected (out of twenty) available XML database systems. We present the technical details of the Cornetto editing process and the results before and after the database transition.
