ready XML Query Language

Abbreviation: XQuery

General Information
XML Query Language (XQuery) is a W3C query language which is designed to be broadly applicable across many types of XML data sources. XQuery is designed to be a language in which queries are concise and easily understood. It is also flexible enough to query a broad spectrum of XML information sources, including both databases and documents. The Query Working Group has identified a requirement for both a non-XML query syntax (XQuery) and an XML-based query syntax (XQueryX).
