Two emerging standards, OpenDocument Format (ODF) and Office Open XML (OOXML), are gaining popularity (and originating several fights in standard bodies). Although neither ODF nor OOXML creates a clear separation between data and presentation, both standards have adopted XML, which means that you can finally use standard XML tools, like XQuery, to query your office documents!
This Halloween we've got a few tricks up our sleeves – XQuery Tips & Tricks! Our latest XQuery learning resource features the most common questions from our customers. Also new this month, learn how to simplify working with Insurance Industry by reading a new tutorial on the ACORD standards. Happy Halloween!
While XML is growing as a B2B data exchange format, EDI and XML will co-exist in B2B scenarios for some time to come. According to a recent report, "B2B Integration Trends: Message Formats", by Forrester Research, enterprise architects should plan for an infrastructure that supports both. The report recommends adopting a strategy that utilizes the new XML-based alternatives to enhance existing EDI formats. Read the complete report for all the details.
"With DataDirect XQuery we were able to reduce code complexity, simplify code maintenance and improve performance and scalability," said Juan Carlos Alfonso, senior software engineer at Core Computer Group. "What once took 50 Java classes and 150 SQL statements was reduced to just a single Java class and seven XQueries using the DataDirect XQuery product."
We've expanded the XQuery eXtra to encompass news about DataDirect XML Converters. Your new XML eXtra will continue to bring you all the latest news about XQuery, and it will also provide up-to-the-minute information on XML-related standards and technologies — like SOA and Web services — and how best to leverage them in the constantly evolving data integration.
With our latest release of this powerful XQuery processor, you can now update relational data, visually analyze query plans, integrate with Web services, execute XQuery faster than ever before using enhanced document projection and streaming technologies, and so much more.
