What the X is XQuery?
Jason Hunter, Mark Logic

Track: XML
Date: Wednesday, July 09
Time: 5:15pm - 6:00pm
Location: Columbia

XQuery, if it lives up to expectations, may be the most important thing to happen in server-side programming this year. XQuery is a W3C specification designed to query collections of XML data including XML files or anything that can appear as XML, such as relational databases. It has the backing of all of the big players including Oracle, IBM, and Microsoft, and has several open source implementations as well. XQuery makes possible the exciting possibility of a single query that combines an incoming purchase order in XML format, an archive of catalog data also in XML format, and an inventory system held in a relational database. In this session you'll learn how to use XQuery, when to use XQuery, and which implementations to trust.
