Thread: query languages

    query languages


    Can someone explain why there are so many query langages for xml files ? xql,
    xpath, xpointer, xml-ql, xquery ... (
    What is the reason of this non-unicity ?
    What are the relationship between all this solutions ?
    They seem to be very close, and the interactions and the dependencies are
    too dark for me.....

    Thanks

    Probably because XML is relatively new and everything is still being worked
    out. Avoid being on the bleeding edge if you can. By the way, most of these
    should work on XML documents, etc. too.

    Other than that I can't tell you the differences. I really currently don't
    have any use for them. XQuery looks promising but it is not there yet.
