By virtue of the prevalence of XML in data interchange and databases publishing, XML queries become more popular employed in enquiry of XML documents. Nowadays many researches have been done to discover the queries patterns. Very often the patterns are value specifics and neglect the underlying relationship. In this paper, we present a framework to support prefetching of web objects through mining of query relationships. We start with a presentation of a method to identify the possible relationships between XML queries. With a query log, sessions of enumerated query relationships can be formed. After mining of the sessions, query patterns are discovered and can be utilized for prefetching so as to improve query performance.
