[xquery-talk] XQuery - good and fast tool

There are two ways of handling XML that is too large to fit in memory:
* with an XML database
* with a streaming processor
Which you use depends on the overall workload. For example, if you are
filtering a data feed and discarding most of the incoming data, then a
streaming processor is clearly the right approach.
Saxon-SA will execute a subset of XQuery in streaming mode (meaning that you
don't need to have the whole source document in memory.)

Subject: [xquery-talk] XQuery - good and fast tool

Hello guys,

I am looking for good XQuery tool. But there are some requirements: XML file
may exceed the size of 5-8 GB.
The tools i am using now, like Saxon or Altova XML Spy, can't really handle
such file.

I have hound database engine MonetDB, for fast xqueries on big data sets.
But it seems to be still in developing phase (and a lot of things are
missing, like connectors).

Do you have any suggestions?
