Hi XQuery gurus,
I would appreciate it a lot if someone can throw some light into
a few elementary questions about XQuery that I have. Thanks in
1. Most of the XQuery implementations that I am familiar with
supports security at the database level. An user connects to the
repository using a loginname/password. Once authenticated, the user
can run queries against all the data in the repository.
Is there any implementation that associates security per
document (or collection)?
2. One XQuery implementation (that I am familiar with) has implemented
vendor extensions that allow constructing and executing a query
dynamically. Do other implementations support a similar functionality?
3. In my XQuery code, I want to discover if a particular library is
available. Only if it is available, I want to execute a function in the
library. If the library does not exist, that I want to proceed ahead
and do other things. Can I do achieve this functionality using only
(I know I can do this from a Java wrapper that looks at a specified
pathname and constructs a dynamic query (prefix an import
statement) if the library module at the specified path exists.)
