Jonathan Robie, DataDirect Technologies’ XQuery Technology Lead, to Present at XML 2006 Conference

Lead Designer of XQuery Shares How to Write XQuery Servlet for REST Data Services and the Productivity and Performance Advantages to be Gained


As a featured speaker at XML 2006, the world’s oldest and biggest XML conference, Jonathan Robie shares his vast expertise on the XML-oriented data integration language, XQuery with attendees of the Enterprise XML Computing track. In his presentation, “An XQuery Servlet for RESTful Data Services,” Jonathan provides a step-by-step guide on how to use XQuery to integrate data from multiple sources to generate reports in an XML or HTML result.

During the presentation, Jonathan shows a servlet that provides a REST interface to any XQuery that a developer places in a secure deployment directory on an application server, then demonstrates the development of data services by writing XQueries that access XML, relational and flat file formats such as EDI to create complex XML and HTML results. Attendees are certain to walk away with a greater understanding of how to prepare queries for optimal performance and the benefits of using a query language specifically designed for XML data integration.


Jonathan Robie is the XQuery Technology Lead at DataDirect Technologies, which specializes in data integration, data connectivity and mainframe integration products. He is a lead designer of XQuery, the W3C XML Query language and an editor of many of the specifications which define the XQuery language. He is also a co-inventor of Quilt, a predecessor of XQuery, and XQL, a predecessor of XPath.

Jonathan has been significantly involved in several other W3C Working Groups, acting as an editor for documents produced by the XML Schema and Document Object Model Working Groups, and has also participated in the W3C XML Information Set and XML Stylesheet Language (XSL) Working Groups. He is well known in the XML world, both as an innovator, speaker and blogosphere contributor (
