As Program Manager of DataDirect XQuery, I'm very happy to announce
that the public beta of DataDirect XQuery is being released
today. Java programs routinely exchange data as XML, but store and
query data using relational databases. DataDirect XQuery is designed
to let you use XQuery in Java applications using the XQuery API for
Java, the "JDBC for XQuery". It can query both XML and relational
sources, and returns XML results as text, DOM, SAX, or
StAX. DataDirect XQuery is simple, portable, and fast.

You can apply for the beta program here:


In the beta, we support the following databases:

  Oracle 9i (R1 and R2) and Oracle 10g

  DB2 Universal Database (UDB) 8.1 on Windows NT, Windows 2000,
  Windows 2003, Windows XP, UNIX, and Linux

  Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (including SP1, SP2, and SP3a)

The beta is based on the 11 February 2005 Working Draft of XQuery[1]
and the Early Review Draft of XQJ[2]. The following tutorials are
helpful for coming to grips with these standards.

  XQJ Tutorial  

Hope this is of interest!
