RESTXQ itself is supported in eXist, BaseX and to a certain extent in

XQuery has no support for processing or responding to HTTP requests, this
is what RESTXQ is trying to solve.

If you would like some background I would recommend reading the paper from
the XML Prague 2012 conference, it's available in the proceedings or at my
website www.adamretter.org/presentations.xml.

RESTXQ will continue to develop, personally I have just lacked time to
update the spec.
