Implementations

This is an abstract of the existing implementations. Rows are the EXPath modules, columns are the processors. The cells contain the latest version of the spec implemented. Hyperlinks in the table below link to pages with more infos about a specific implem (either at the level of the processor, or at the level of every specific module implem for one particular processor).

There is a status column indicating for each spec, how many implementation are available. For a fair comparison, we count only once for the 3 Saxon based implementation (Saxon, Calabash and Servlex). The File module is implemented natively in Saxon PE and EE, and is available as a 3d-party package for Saxon HE.

Processors

Packaging

Several tools exist for the Packaging System:

  • EXPath Repo: on-disk package repository manager
  • XProject: automatic package building based on project directory conventions
  • oXygen plugin: oXygen plugin for XProject
  • CXAN: global inventory of existing packages
  • CXAN Sandbox: sandbox to play with CXAN

Webapp

The specification is still at draft stage, but Servlex already implements it (in a moving target way).
