  • Come and check-out a new Query Language spec from W3C.



    Srinivas Pandrangi, Architect - Ipedo


    Presentation Overview


    XQuery is a query language designed for querying any data source that could be represented as XML. This includes not only XML documents, but also any data that can be mapped to an XML infoset (including relational databases, ERP systems etc). With most major vendors of both relational(MS, IBM, Oracle) and native XML databases(Ipedo, SoftwareAG, Excelon etc.) committed to implementing XQuery, it is poised to be the standard query language for XML.

    This talk will provide an update on the status of the XQuery specifications and presents a tutorial on XQuery as it stands today. We will discuss some of the language's syntax and semantics, and put it in context with respect to existing XML standards.
