   [ANN] eXist 1.0 beta1 featuring XQuery

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm pleased to announce the first beta release of eXist 1.0. eXist is an open 
source native XML database, now adding support for XQuery 1.0 (November, 2003 
working draft). 

XQuery features include modules, static type checking, constructors, dynamic 
execution, and many extension functions. The query engine passes most of the 
XQuery use cases (excluding the strong use cases, which are currently beyond 
our scope).

The new XQueryServlet and XQueryGenerator for Cocoon provide a simple way to 
write web applications in XQuery. In addition, the release contains 
many bugfixes, improved locking and caching strategies, and support for 
binary resources.

Downloads and demos are available at
