   RE: [xml-dev] combining XML documents

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thank you for helpful information.

one more thing.
what is the best solution (Html+xml or??) to do the following:

read which xml files are stored in 3 different directories and publish this
results on web page (only the "title" tag to be shown), where one can then
select 1 or 2 XML file/s to show different information.

i've done it with XSL but it looks pathetic. is there smoother way?

thank you

It depends on your application, but XQuery was designed to handle
combining information from different documents ("joins").
I.e. the typic query would be:
> for $a in doc('a.xml')/foo/bar,
>     $b in doc('b.xml')//baz
> where $a/@id = $b/ref/@id
> return $b
etc. pp.

There are quite a lot of tutorials on XQuery. For the impatient reader
the two from Michael Kay are very good:

A bit longer:

Just Google for "xquery tutorial".
