[xquery-talk] Open source XQuery processors

Thank you to all who responded to my question. I’m anticipating that most people attending this workshop will not have a programming background. So, simplicity is important. I’d like participants to leave feeling empowered and not overwhelmed (at least that’s my goal).

In answer to Michael’s question, while I think a database implementation would be preferable (for working with XQuery), there are some librarians who may not have the IT support for a database implementation and I’d like to guide them to “filestore” implementations also.

Are you looking for database implementations of XQuery, or “filestore” implementations?

I’m preparing an ALA preconference session for librarians titled “Using XQuery as a Library Metadata Tool.” I’d like to provide the attendees with a list of XQuery resources so they can set up their own XQuery programming environment at their home institutions. Open source software is usually preferred by librarians, especially for grant projects.

I feel a little handicapped in this area as I’ve been using MarkLogic for over seven years and have not had to work with open source XQuery tools.

Any recommendations on what should be on this list?
