   Re: [xml-dev] Query Format in XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I'm working on a system based on XML and XPath like XSLT that can mix 
XML litterals with XML instructions, but unlike XSLT :
-it can query various data sources (RDBMS with SQL, XML:DB databases, 
LDAP, etc)
-there is not a single markup language ; the system is rather a 
container within which several family of tags can run together ; tags 
can be mixed at will
It's rather a system for native XML programming than for querying.

It is used in a production environment at INRIA

exemple :
Here is an exemple that shows how to map straightforward the result of 
an SQL query to an arbitrary complex XML structure without the help of 
XSLT, and expose the stuff as a user-define tag :
Other examples are available

the drafts :

the implementation :
