Concepts

Module

A module is a set of functions, which cannot be implemented in plain XQuery or XSLT, but needs to be implemented as an extension.

A module is defined in a specification, maintained by an editor, by following a community-driven approach. Modules are implemented directly in different processors, or by third-party implementation. See the page Modules for a list of existing modules, and their implementation for various processors.
