Today I saw a news article in theserverside.com,
"I attended a seminar by Anders Hejlsberg, Microsoft Chief Architect for
C#. He said that Microsoft were working on native support for SQL in

So, they are dropping XQuery and creating something equivalent to SQLJ
for C# ...

While I share your beliefs in the value of XQuery to users, I'm quite
happy for Microsoft to leave the market to third parties ;-)

	Dear XQuery-Talk,


	Microsoft announced that they are dropping XQuery from their
next release of the .NET Framework, 2.0 (Whidbey). Since Microsoft ships
.NET Framework only every 3 or so years, cutting XQuery from Whidbey
means that the next opportunity for XQuery to find its way into .NET
Framework won't be until around 2009, and even then it's far from a sure
thing. That's why it's so important that the community of XQuery
developers makes XQuery a priority for Microsoft.


	Stylus Studio believes that XQuery's has broader applicability
then just an XML querying language but is also an important mid-tier
data integration and Web service enabling technology, and therefore
should not be dropped from the Microsoft .NET 2.0 Framework. Stylus
Studio is asking for any developer who shares this vision and to sign
the petition online at: http://www.stylusstudio.com/xqueryforall/
