As well as experience with retrieving SQL/XML results via JDBC, proprietary 
APIs from the XML database community, and a variety of other related APIs.

And it's worth mentioning that there have been XQuery APIs per se since the 
Kweelt API in September, 2000. The submission refers to XQuery APIs 
designed by BEA, Oracle, and DataDirect, but I know there are others 
designed by Software AG, Infonyte, e-XMLMedia, Microsoft ... I don't think 
this list is at all complete.

The API basically has to be able to issue a query against data sources and 
retrieve a result, presenting the result using one of the existing standard 
XML APIs. At that level, I doubt that the detailed changes in the XQuery 
language affect the API significantly at all.
