Here is a brief blurb from the docs:
"Oracle XML DB repository provides a hierarchical data repository in the database modeled on XML. Oracle XML DB repository maps path names (or URLs) onto database objects of XMLType and provides management facilities for these objects. Oracle XML DB also provides the Oracle XML DB protocol server. This supports standard Internet protocols, FTP, WebDAV, and HTTP, for accessing its hierarchical repository or file system. Because XML documents reference each other using URLs, typically HTTP URLs, Oracle XML DB repository and its protocol support are important Oracle XML DB components."
You can find the documentation on this in the XML DB Application Developer's Guide on OTN. In the 10gR1 Document, it's section 24.
