from the experts: A guide to the W3C XML query language.
These include the ability to write applications and queries in C Sharp instead of T-SQL and use of SOAP, XQuery
and XML Schema Definition.
The new query language, XQuery
, is still evolving, but it will provide a functional language comprised of several kinds of expressions that can be nested or composed with full generality.
Alongside that there is the data map, which stores schema definitions used to manage the storage and retrieval of XML documents; the XML parser and object processor, which validates that requests to create new XML objects conform with the formatting rules; and XQuery
, the database access method akin to relational's SQL.
With X-Hive's existing support of W3C standards such as XLink, XPointer, XPath, and a recent release of its XQuery
implementation demo, the launch of X-Hive/DB 2.0 widens the gap in the XML database market.
