XQuery is a high-level declarative programming language designed to access and manipulate data-oriented or document-oriented information represented in various data models and formats. For instance, a typical XQuery scenario is the integration of relational data with atom feeds to generate HTML and JSON.
This presentation is about XQuery Development Tools (XQDT), an Eclipse feature for developing and debugging XQuery applications. Various aspects of this project will be covered during this talk, including:
- the new XQuery editor based on WTP SSE
- code formatting
- extension points, like vendor-specific language features
- the future of XQDT
A demonstration of XQDT will be given.
Lionel Villard is a senior software engineer at IBM Research. He has recently joined the XQDT project as a committer. Before that, he has been involved in many other projects, in particular Virtual XML Garden which is now part of the IBM Websphere XML Feature Pack thin client.
