As XML in the enterprise increases, application developers, and data integration
specialists must deal with the large number of XML formatted
messages on the network as well as such messages' increasingly large sizes. The XQuery approach to handling and
processing XML is recognized as the best approach to dealing with the manipulation of XML data. DataDirect XQuery® adds support for non-XML and non-relational
data, XML streaming, and very large XML document support.
The W3C standard XQuery has recently emerged as a robust technology that is well suited for common data integration needs.
Rather than using proprietary data adapters, tightly-coupled integration middleware, or complex mapping technologies, the XQuery approach applies
standards-based documents and general-purpose transformation engines to the problem of data integration. In this ZapNote, we explore XQuery
and DataDirect XQuery® as an illustration of this powerful technique in practice.
XQuery is a new standards-based XML technology from the W3C that provides an easy way to query, transform, and integrate XML data.
There are a lot of promising indicators which would lead one to believe in the XQuery revolution, yet to date, no comprehensive
XQuery industry study has been published to challenge the statistical validity of such claims, until now.
When designing a service-oriented architecture, enterprises should give careful attention to their data. Key criteria for success include the ability to efficiently process XML, the format used in all requests and responses, and the ability to easily incorporate data from a variety of sources, processing them together with data from incoming requests to create responses.
