In the database update validation field, we are often unaware that there is a softer side of business rules, where it is hard to be expressed in the form of data constraint, as they require human decisions, etc. Even though it is not as critical as data constraint; but it may influence the accurateness of system data in their own way. The motivation of our research is to handle this type of rule, particularly for XML update validation. We have come out with the concept of dynamic constraint validation special for XML data, which is based from soft type business rules. We also have proposed a few different types of dynamic constraints and an algorithm to extract only necessary information for dynamic type of rules w.r.t. the validation operation. In this paper, we mainly focus only on the single node updating for single step transition, which will affect the dynamic constraint. The dynamic constraint is expressed using Schematron and should be flexible enough to sit on top of any existing XML database. The analysis shows that the algorithm is in polynomial efficiency.
