XQuery Examples Collection[edit]

Welcome to the XQuery Examples Collection Wikibook! XQuery is a World Wide Web Consortium recommendation for selecting data from documents and databases.

Current Status[edit]

We are in the process of testing many of these examples using the eXist 2.0 release. Please let us know if you find any problems. We are looking for volunteers to help us create XQuery 3.0 examples.

Recent Changes

New and Revised Articles[edit]

About this Project[edit]

This is a collaborative project and we encourage everyone who is using XQuery to contribute their XQuery examples. All example programs must conform to the creative-commons-2.5 share-alike with attribution license agreement [1].

Execution of examples use an eXist demo server.

  1. Instructors: please sign our Guest Registry if you are using this book for learning or teaching XQuery
  2. Contributors: please see our Naming Conventions to ensure your examples are consistent with the textbook
  3. Learners: If you are looking for an example of a specific XQuery language construct, technique or problem but can't find an example, please add a suggestion to the Examples Wanted section.

Transforming Complex XML Documents[edit]

XQuery has many features that allow you to transform XML and create full document-style transformation libraries. Unlike traditional "database" documents, complex XML documents have "complex content" that includes in-line elements in unpredictable order. This section provides a foundation for these transformations based on using the XQuery typeswitch functions. Typeswitch function transformations replace XSLT transforms but can also access indexes for very fast transforms of large collections. 50% developed  as of Nov 29th, 2010
