I also think that XQuery can be very nice at client-side, especially
with XForms. I already looked at Zorba...
When a plug-in is necessary, it means that public use is a problem and
that version management is difficult.
My project named XSLTForms is a client-side implementation of XForms
analysis with XSLT 1.0 only. It's complex but didn't required more than
few days. The result is a sort of compiled expression easy be to
such as IE, FireFox, Opera and Safari/Chrome. I don't like to have to
wait for editors to implement recommendations and some of them prefer
invent new "revolutionary" stuff instead...
Let me add that this architecture (XSLT transformation then generated
functions they could require.
Version 1.0 of XSLTForms has to be released before implementing XQuery
instruction analysis in it but I now think it's possible without too
many difficulties (I would have liked a reasonable XML notation for
XQuery...). As XSLTForms is already an opensource project, contributors
are welcome to join !
