Re[2]: [xml-dev] XQuery & Several records (instead of one xml-field)


MK> My experience so far of these hybrid relational/xml systems is that your
MK> problem as a user is not a lack of functionality, but an excess. There are
MK> simply too many ways of doing the same thing, and they have too many
MK> irritating differences - different sets of functions, different rules for
MK> case independence, different conventions for escaping special characters -
MK> and different (unpredictably different) performance. I find it hard to
MK> believe that this ugly hybrid of SQL and XQuery represents the future of
MK> database technology. I find databases where everything is XML (or indeed
MK> where everything is tables) much easier to work with.
