Hi, David.

We've implemented a commercial content management/information retrieval
system that stores/indexes/queries XML natively, and that uses Z39.50
as its underlying interface.

Although complex to implement, we've been pretty happy with Z39.50
for handling both client-server and server-server operations.

You might like to wander around
or just fire off any questions.
