We have started an effort called EXQuery http://www.exquery.org to try and increase the portability of XQuery Applications. We believe that a number of additional standards are required to complement W3C XQuery 1.0. If we can develop such standards and get broad vendor adoption then portability should become easier. Our first standardisation project is to look at extension functions for XQuery. Currently many XQuery implementations provide similar extension functionality but through different function signatures, this makes creating portable applications very difficult. If you have previously had to extend XQuery with additional functionality to deliver an application we would love to hear about it. Please submit such use cases here - http://www.exquery.org/standards/use-cases.xql (Note - There is a known problem with the rich-text editor on that page in Internet Explorer, we hope to fix it very soon. If you do wish to submit rich-text, you may find an alternative browser such as Firefox makes this possible). Anyone is welcome to join via. our mailing lists and contribute ideas, suggestions and resources. We also have a core team of experts from within the XQuery community to provide drive, guidance and support for our projects. Thanks Adam -- Adam Retter EXQuery Founder http://x-query.com/mailman/listinfo/talk http://www.exquery.org
