Re: [xml-dev] JDBC in an XQuery world (?)

JDBC is just a thin layer over SQL; JDBC clients construct SQL strings, possibly
with variables in them.  So the question is: what would it mean for an
XQuery database to expose a SQL API?  It would require a mapping of the
XML data model onto a relational data model, which inevitably would
require discarding some information.  What information exactly?  Would it
be possible to access every XML document, or just some of them?
