Re: [xml-dev] XML representation of SQL queries?

what about XQuery  : http://www.w3schools.com/xquery/default.asp ?
I never used any part of that, but I thought that was ok.

There's a represention of SQL query *results* as XML that's been adapted
for different purposes. Java (JDBC) defines the format of a WebRowset
that's also supported by grid services and the Globus Toolkit.

Representing the SQL query source as XML would require an XML vocabulary
that can accommodate SQL as a moving target (different SQL dialects). Not
every SQL platform implements the SQL:2003 standard and platform providers
often implement extensions to the standard.

The problem is somewhat analagous to trying to develop a standard XML spec
for office documents. One standard might support Java embedding, whereas
another might support embedded OLE components.
