XQuery, XPath Working Drafts Published
The W3C XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group have released several Working Drafts. XQuery is a computer language designed to return information to users or their agents, and is applicable to many types of XML data sources from documents to databases, search engines, and object repositories. Derived from XPath 1.0 and XQuery, XPath is a language used to address parts of an XML document. Read about the W3C XML and Style Activities. Today's publications include:
- XQuery 1.0: An XML Query Language and XML Path Language (XPath) 2.0 are the result of integrating the XQuery and XPath languages. These drafts are in large part identical.
- XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Data Model is the data model for XSLT 2.0, XQuery, and other specifications that reference it.
- Two joint task forces from the XML Query, XML Schema, and XSL Working Groups produced XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators, designed to be read in conjunction with the data model, XPath 2.0, XQuery, and XSLT 2.0.
- In addition, the XML Query group released XML Query Use Cases.
