1 Introduction

This document describes the namespace http://www.w3.org/2005/xquery-local-functions defined by the [XQuery 3.1] specification (October 2014 version). This namespace is identified by the namespace prefix local:, which is a predefined prefix, but it is not defined by an XML schema. For updated information, please refer to the latest version of the [XQuery 3.1] specification.

This document describes the intended uses of this namespace. The W3C reserves the right to define names in this namespace in the future. [XQuery 3.1] is the only specification that may amend this namespace.

This namespace is defined so that application developers and query authors have a (default) namespace in which they may define functions that are not in any other namespace.

This document contains a directory of links to related resources, using RDDL (as defined in [Resource Directory Description Language (RDDL)]).

It is GRDDL-enabled (as defined in [Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages (GRDDL)]), that is to say that a GRDDL-compliant processor can extract useful RDF (as defined in [Resource Description Framework (RDF): Concepts and Abstract Syntax]) representations of the information contained herein.
