To use SQLA, yes.
The SQLite backend is a very cheap/easy way to start; local files,
no server needed etc.
In unit tests I use this DB URL: 'sqlite:///:memory:'. It makes an
in-memory database. Of course, it vanishes as soon the the program
exits, but for this purpose that's fine.
BTW, if you're parsing XML data specificly, look at BeautifulSoup
4 and XPath (search syntax; IIRC the XML objects you get from BS4
can use it to locate things).

The nice thing about standards is that you have so many to choose from;
furthermore, if you do not like any of them, you can just wait for next
year's model. - Andrew S. Tanenbaum
