A new DevX online poll shows that a majority of software developers currently use or plan to use XQuery technologies. According to the non-scientific poll of 302 software developers, 43% said that "We implemented XQuery and it's incredibly useful"; another 16% said that "we'll be using [XQuery] soon, too". DevX is the premier online technical information source for application development professionals.
"A recent DevX online poll suggests a substantial and growing interest in XQuery technologies among the DevX readership of software and IT professionals, even though the XQuery specification itself is still in development," said Dr. A. Russell Jones, Executive Editor at DevX.com, a Jupitermedia company. "It's also significant because our readers aren't exclusively XML developers, but rather come from such diverse technological backgrounds."
