Track: XML

XQuery may be the most important (yet underhyped) XML technology available today. XQuery is a W3C specification designed to query collections of XML data, XML files or anything that can appear as XML, such as relational databases. It has the backing of all the big corporate players and has numerous open source implementations. XQuery offers 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, led by someone who's used XQuery for two years, you'll learn how to use XQuery, when to use XQuery, and which implementations to trust.
