An introduction to XQuery

An introduction to XQuery
Howard Katz introduces the W3C's XQuery specification, currently winding
its way toward Recommendation status after emerging from a long incubation
period behind closed doors. The complex specification consists of six
separate working drafts, with more to come. This article provides some
background history, a road map into the documentation, and an overview of
some of the technical issues involved in the specification. A sidebar takes
a quick look at some key features of XQuery's surface syntax. Code samples
demonstrate the difference between XQuery and XQueryX and show examples of
the surface syntax.
