DataDirect XQuery 1.0 is Released!

I am extremely happy that the product our team has been working
on for the last three years is now commercially available.

There is also a free eval copy that you can play with for 15
days, which is a lot more fun than reading about it! If you want
to cut to the chase, stop reading and download DataDirect XQuery
1.0 from http://www.datadirect.com/products/xquery. It's
straightforward to install, includes lots of sample code, and has
great documentation.

Using DataDirect XQuery means that your applications can run on
any Java platform, accessing data from the major relational
databases, using any Web server or application server, or using
no server at all. And DataDirect XQuery performs quite well, even
when your query creates large XML results.

DataDirect XQuery supports all major relational
databases,including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server 2000, IBM DB2,
and Sybase,on any Java platform, allowing developers to query
XML, relational databases, or a combination of the two. Query
results can be used for XML-based data exchange, XML-driven Web
sites, and other applications that use XML for their data.

Internet developers typically spend much of their time creating
and restructuring XML, using data from many sources, generally
including relational data. This task is much too tedious in most
environments. Using DataDirect XQuery simplifies the programming
task significantly, solving the same problems with much less
code. This is definitely a tool you should play with if you do
this kind of work.
