Re: After XQuery, are we done?

xlink xquery

It's also worth noting that linking isn't just about getting you from 
this Web page to that. Lots of XML schemas have links in them -- XSD 
comes to mind -- but there is no way to know that these are links 
without knowing the language. More widespread adoption of XLink (or 
another linking language) would also make it more feasible to support 
links in native XML databases.

I also agree that binary XML has a relatively bright future. Once JSR 
225 (XQuery API for Java) is finalized, there's going to be a lot of XQJ 
driver implementers looking for faster wire protocols for transmitting 
XML from the database to the client. Like it or not -- and I'm not sure 
where I sit yet -- binary XML is faster and smaller than real XML.
