XQJ is an API for Java programs, but that doesn't mean the format of the data going across the wire has to be Java-centric. If we pass strings between XQJ clients and XQuery servers, developers who've been processing SQL using C++, PHP, Perl, and Python will often choose to support XQuery by adapting existing scripts or classes. On the other hand, if an XQJ client must emit abstract syntax trees (serialized as Java byte arrays), we'll have to write Java programs for both ends of the XQJ client - XQuery server link.
