Re: newbie XUpdate how to use with java!
> XSLT has its place (I use it a lot). XUpdate has its place (I use it a > lot). Let's just leave off the FUD. I guess we definitely need XUpdate, at least until XQuery defines an update language. I don't see a good alternative (apart from implementing our own proprietary extensions). If data needs to be updated continuously, you can't always replace the whole document for each modification. That's where XUpdate has its place. Even if the standard is abandoned, its implementations are not. Just count the XUpdate related messages on the eXist mailing list. I know at least a dozen applications that rely on XUpdate. It rather seems time to complete the specification ;-) Wolfgang -- Wolfgang Meier http://exist-db.org
