I'm not quite sure I'd agree with this. In my mind, the correspondence is:

XML                    RDBMS
--------------------   -------------------
XQJ                    JDBC
XQuery                 SQL
XML database or file   Relational database

In other words, XQJ is a way to connect to an XQuery implementation 
(e.g. Saxon), execute XQuery statements, and get back query results.
