Subject:Why XQuery? How new XML Standards will Challenge and Revolutionize the Database Industry Author:SSDN Admin Date:11 Feb 2005 01:55 PM
Web services are the next wave of B2B applications. But what about all the data they require? Where is the data stored and how is it all pulled together?
Join Jonathan Bruce, XQuery technology evangelist at DataDirect Technologies, at the Web Services Edge East conference for 'The XML Data Challenge'. Bruce will discuss how emerging standards such as XQuery, XQJ and SQL/XML promise to revolutionize data exchange and ease the burden Web services programmers have when integrating relational and XML data.
DataDirect Technologies, the leading provider of components for connecting software to data, will also be showcasing DataDirect XQuery™, an implementation of the W3C XQuery standard using the XQuery API for Java™ (XQJ), Early Draft Review. The product can query both XML and relational data sources and return XML results. DataDirect XQuery provides unparalleled functionality and flexibility to enterprises for XML processing and is the easiest way to integrate relational data and XML, including XML used in Web services. The DataDirect XQuery beta program is scheduled for Spring 2005.
