   Re: [xml-dev] What niche is XQuery targeting?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

On the contrary,  I think the fact that it's now December of 2004, and 
we've yet to see a rec of XQuery 1.0, even though it's been touted as 
the de-facto successor in XML query languages for years leaves ample 
room for comparison.  Any language that has been built up on that much 
hype for so long, yet is not finished, is open for comparison to any 
other, even if it hasn't found widespread acceptance.
